THE COST of a late-night burger was much higher than this driver could ever have expected, after he was pulled over and had his vehicle seized.

The Volkswagen driver was pulled over by officers on the M66 after being seen by officers driving at high speeds in Accrington.

The driver, who had already been warned about his speed since lockdown began, claimed he had been out looking for a burger.

A police spokesman said: “The search for a late-night burger by the driver of this car came to an end on the M66 after being seen driving at excessive speeds by officers in Accrington.

“The driver had already been warned in April about his style of driving but ignored the advice.”
