A FOREIGN driver parked outside an internet café holding an advice day for migrant workers - that included information on British motoring laws - was booked for having no licence, insurance or car tax.

"This gentleman would have benefited from our advice had he had come and seen us at the engagement day," said PCSO Sue Clarke, one of the event organisers.

"It was ironic that PCSO Tracy Smith and I were offering migrant workers the chance to come and talk to us and find out about our laws to do with motor vehicles on the road."

Police seized the vehicle and a court appearance is likely. He is due to receive a letter notifying him of a date to attend court.

The man's green Hyundai Accent was badly parked with the back wheels too far away from the kerb, preventing a lorry driver from getting past.

With the help of members of the public the PCSOs pushed the car to the side of the road.

They then discovered the car tax was several months out of date and, when the driver returned, he admitted that he had no insurance.

A police officer was called and the car was removed and after further investigation the driver was found not to have a driving licence.

Back inside the café, the two PCSOs were joined by Roddons Housing Association, and staff from partner agencies including Drinksense and Addaction to offer advice. Representatives from the DVLA also attended.

PCSO Clarke said: "We hope to be able to do a similar day to offer such advice in the very near future.
