A CAR belonging to an uninsured driver who tried to make off from the police has been seized.

Officers from Burnley North Neighbourhood Policing Team had been on patrol on Thursday evening when they came across the black Honda.

The driver avoided the officers, however the car was quickly located and seized afterwards, with police now aiming to locate the driver.

A police spokesperson said: "If the driver would like to claim his car back, please make contact with us, as we'd like to have a chat."
