A luxury car has been seized by police in Prestwich today, Tuesday, after reportedly being driven with no insurance.

Greater Manchester Police Specials officers said they summoned the driver of a black Mercedes to court after the vehicle was ordered to pull over. 

As well as having no insurance, police said the driver had already accumulated six points on their licence.

The registration plate of the Mercedes was run through an automatic number plate recognition camera.

A Greater Manchester Police spokesperson said: “Another one taken off the road by our GMP Specials for no insurance.

“The driver didn't bother to get insurance and already has six points.

“Vehicle seized and summoned direct to court."
