An Audi that aroused police officer’s suspicions has been seized after the driver was reportedly found to have been travelling without insurance.

Police said on Saturday that they noticed the driver while out on patrol on Prestwich.

He had caught their attention because of the “manner of driving” and on stopping the car and questioning the driver, officers said they found he had no insurance.

A spokesperson for Greater Manchester Police said: “This vehicle came to the attention of XT51 in Prestwich due to the manner of driving.

“The vehicle was stopped and the driver was found to have no insurance!

“The vehicle was seized and the driver reported.”

No other arrests or vehicles seized have been reported by police in connection with the incident.

This comes amid recurring concerns about car thefts and other crimes and cases of anti-social behaviour on the roads across Bury and Greater Manchester as a whole.

As well as thefts, this has included dangerous driving, drink and drug driving and speeding.

Police have urged anyone concerned about crime on the roads to get in touch by calling 101 or 999 in the event of an emergency.

Alternatively, witnesses can call independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
