An inconsiderate motorist - already on the criminal radar - who tried to scare police horses with aggressive driving has had his car seized.

Mounted officers were out and about in Blackburn on Tuesday when the occupant of this Audi aggressively drove past them in an effort to terrify the horses.

When officers later stopped the man, they found he'd already had a warning for anti-social driving, and proceeded to seize his car.

A spokesperson for the police said: "The driver of this vehicle thought it would be a good idea to drive aggressively past mounted officers today in Blackburn in an effort to scare the horses.

"His vehicle has now been seized under Section 59 by officers from Team 3 Tac Ops and Response.

"This was especially daft considering he already had a warning for anti social driving #offyoutrot #neighyoudont."
