A car with no insurance or registered owner has been seized by police after it was left in Corsham.

Police received intelligence that the silver and black Volkswagen had been driven around the town, despite being uninsured and having no registered keeper, after it was spotted by members of the community.

Neighbourhood officers located the car the next day when they discovered it had been left parked on the side of the road in Queen’s Avenue.
