Ilkeston cops seize car for no Insurance

Police officers in Ilkeston have taken a car off the road after it was shown as having no valid Insurance.

The incident happened on Derby Road, Ilkeston on Monday 17th April when the car, a Ford KA, activated a vehicle number plate recognition camera located in a patrol car.

The driver, a 38 year-old woman who was on her way to work, was not able to produce any valid insurance so the car was seized and she was reported for a summons to be issued for her to attend court. 

Sergeant Damien Shannon, who is in charge of Safer Neighbourhood policing in Ilkeston, said: “Some of our vehicles are equipped with number plate recognition cameras that will alert our officers to any potential irregularities. 

“We will not hesitate to seize vehicles that appear not to be covered by valid insurance as this is clearly a danger to those using these vehicles and other road users."
