Uninsured van driver's false plates get him into a sticky situation in Hopwood

A VAN driver found himself in a sticky situation when police saw through the fact his false number plates were attached with velcro.

The motorist was stopped at Hopwood Park Services, off the M42, yesterday.

When officers from Worcestershire Operational Policing Unit did checks on the real registration number they found not only was it uninsured but also that it was declared as being ‘off the road’ (SORN).
