“Due to the concerns raised by the manner of his driving, the man was issued with a traffic offence report for not being in proper control of his vehicle.” The latest incident comes after a routine M6 stop check on a Turkish lorry revealed it owed GBP8,000 in fines relating to illegal clandestine smuggling. The vehicle was seized by Cheshire Police on Monday (January 11) and taken into the Sandbach check site just off the M6.

Following the routine check, officers discovered that the company that owned the vehicle had an outstanding fine of GBP8,000 relating to illegal clandestine smuggling.
