PC Richie Stewart, from the BCH Road Policing Unit, said: “We are determined to ensure that your local roads are safe and I hope that residents are pleased to hear this news.
“This should also be a warning to those who think they can get away with driving offences. The next vehicle we seize could be yours. Don’t take the risk.”
