Lancashire Road Police: Seven people in a Toyota Yaris, knives, and children without seatbelts

Lancashire’s road officer’s instincts have proved spot-on this week.

After stopping cars for lights out, excess speeds and an expired MOT, drivers have been found to be drug-driving, wanted after failing to attend court and carrying knives.

Elsewhere, a Toyota Yaris was stopped in Preston carrying seven people – one trying to hide in the boot with a bag over his head, and a scooter driver was reported after undertaking an unmarked police car.
