Boy-racer's lecture to police about the law ends with Renault Clio being loaded onto a flatbed truck

Police have seized a car following reports of a disturbance at a supermarket car park. Gwent Police said it received reports of anti-social driving at a retail park in Newport at 9.35pm on Sunday. The male driver was issued with a warning and the Renault Clio he was driving was seized by officers at the scene.

Earlier the same evening, Gwent Police had responded to a similar report of another car being driven in an anti-social manner in the Tesco car park in Spytty, Newport. Writing on Twitter, the officer called to the incident said: “Attended Tesco, Spytty Retail Park. Anti-social behaviour reported.

Vehicle stopped and I had a lesson in law. Needless to say the vehicle was seized regardless.”

Who owns the car and the age of the driver has not been disclosed by police. However, getting the car back is going to prove a costly.

The owner will have to pay for recovery and storage charges as well as show their driver’s licence, valid insurance and proof of ID before the vehicle can be released. It is not the first time there has been trouble at the supermarket’s car park. In September, customers reported seeing regular gatherings of so-called car cruises.

One video showed several cars speeding around the area and pulling dangerous stunts.

MP for Newport East Jessica Morden said: “A number of Lliswerry and Glan Llyn residents have been in touch following further incidences of dangerous driving and public disturbance at the Tesco car park in Spytty and on the SDR.

“I will continue to raise residents’ concerns and push for a solution to this ongoing problem.”
