A Halifax police community support officer on his push bike tracked down a anti social Ferrari driver and issued him with warning as part of new police crackdown.

PCSO Daniel Lortie was out on his bike when he was asked to make enquiries into a black Ferrari that had been reported for driving in an anti-social manner on Haugh Shaw Road.

The driver and the vehicle were located, the driver spoken to and served with a Section 59 Warning.

The order can be given to the vehicle AND the driver, so if either is caught doing the same again, the vehicle can be seized.

Operation Hawmill has been launched in Calderdale and is aimed at tackling the ‘Fatal Four’ - speeding, drink and drug driving, failing to wear a seatbelt and using a mobile phone - all of which are the main causes of fatal and serious road accidents.
