THREE motorists were pulled up for road offences when police from the Rural Community Action Team held a day of action in Fenland.

The checks were carried out at Ring's End, on the A141, on Sunday by officers working with Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs' fuel testing team.

The checks resulted in:

One person found driving without an excise licence, who was reported to the DVLA.

One vehicle with three faulty tyres seized from a motorist driving without insurance. The driver will now be summonsed to court.

One person fined £500 for running their vehicle on red diesel.

PCSO Lydia Crabtree said: "I hope this sends a strong message to those drivers who are breaking the laws of the road. These people are endangering their own lives and the lives of others.

"We will continue to run these checks and anyone caught committing an offence could face fines, penalty points, vehicle seizures or court action.
