A CAR which shot past police officers at almost 100mph was on cloned plates.

Lancashire Police Road officers were out on patrol over the weekend when the Volkswagen sped up the M55 towards roadworks showing no signs of slowing down.

Once pulled over, it was found the car was on cloned plates and the driver had no licence or insurance.

A police spokesman said: “The dot in the distance shot past MN31 on the Westbound M55 heading towards the roadworks.

“It didn’t slow down much on reaching them. When stopped it transpires the vehicle was on cloned plates & the driver had no licence or insurance! Vehicle seized & driver reported.”
