Surprised police grabbed a Buy One Get One Free Offer by ticketing TWO uninsured drivers for being behind the wheel of ONE vehicle in Northampton.

The unlikely BOGOF deal came after a truck was spotted by an unmarked police vehicle in Harborough Road at around 8pm on Friday night (June 19).

But one driver's attempts to dodge a hefty fine and possible court appearance by swapping seats with the passenger only landed both men in more trouble.

A spokesman for Northamptonshire Police said: "The vehicle was stopped in nearby Gladstone Road where it was established that neither the passenger or the driver could produce a valid licence nor prove they were insured, so both drivers were ticketed for offences and the vehicle seized."
