Police seized 21 vehicles and made two arrests across Bromley last week as their crackdown on uninsured drivers in the borough continued.

Using stop sites in Anerley Hill, Crystal Palace, and Cray Avenue, in Orpington, the team made vehicles checks and arrested one man after more than £1,000 of counterfeit money was found in his car.

Chief Insp Katrina Smith, of Bromley police, said: “We continue to target criminals by denying them the use of the roads so it’s much harder for them to commit crime.

“We’re also helping to make Bromley’s roads safer as uninsured drivers are more likely to have collisions and less likely to have road-worthy vehicles.

“We will be continuing to run these operations across Bromley to make our streets safer, and also to send a strong message to people who choose to drive without insurance that we will seize and possibly sell or crush your vehicle”.
