Officers who stopped a vehicle were shocked to discover the driver had not held a licence for two decades.

Blackburn and Darwen police said the white van was seized earlier today.

Police officers posted: “After over 20 years of driving without a licence, it was this individual’s unlucky day.

"Officers were alerted to a vehicle that had acquired over nine speeding tickets. On stopping the vehicle the driver did not have a licence or insurance.

“The driver was left to make their way to work on foot, but its a beautiful day for it!”
