It's been a busy week for South Wiltshire's police officers, catching up with people who have been driving without the proper documentation.

A car was stopped on the A36 at Pepperbox Hill on Wednesday morning (January 10th) for having no insurance.

Here's the Facebook post from Salisbury Police about that incident:

In another incident, the morning before (Tuesday January 9th), another car was stopped by officers for having not had insurance for the last 3 months.

The Ford Ka was pulled over on Viking Way in Harnham, at around 9.00am.

The car's been seized and the driver will have to go to court.
