A van driver was arrested in Northampton yesterday afternoon after officers found that the vehicle was uninsured (April 14).

A police officer was on patrol in an unmarked vehicle when an automatic number plate recognition camera was activated in Kingsthorpe.

The van had a marker placed on it because it had allegedly been seen to be involved with fly-tipping offences in another county.
