A vehicle was seized in Brighouse leaving the driver a long walk back to South Yorkshire according to police officers.

The Vauxhall Corsa was pulled over by the West Yorkshire Police Road Policing Unit along Bradford Road on November 20.

Posting on Twitter the unit said: "Driver of this Corsa stopped in Brighouse now faces a long walk home back to South Yorkshire. Provisional licence holder with no insurance. Reported to court and likely ban to follow."

The road policing unit is responsible for the policing of the road network throughout the Force, an area of 2029 km2 with a population of approximately 2,108,000 people.

Within this area there are roads of all types including one of the busiest motorway networks in Europe.

This network includes the M62 Trans-Pennine motorway; the highest and the most congested in the country.

Safer Roads Officers are part of a larger team of officers and operate from two strategically placed bases to cover the Force area; including the motorway network and to maximize the use of the resources available at any one time.

This co-location helps to facilitate effective relationships with local NPT and Response Commanders to jointly tackle local issues.
