The first incident of the night walked right into officers when an Audi driver decided to start speeding with a marked police car behind them.

Officers caught up with the driver along Weasenam Lane in Wisbech and it was discovered they had no valid insurance.

The black Audi saloon was loaded onto a recovery lorry outside the Del Monte Quality factory.

A spokesman for Cambridgeshire Police said: "Busy night again for seizing cars in Wisbech.

"Today's tip; don't speed with a marked police car behind you, this will insure you don't get stopped, Audi driver had no insurance."

The night continued as officers stopped a silver Renault car in the Fen town.
