A CAR allegedly being driven by a disqualified driver was stopped on the M6 motorway.

Police said that the driver thought he had a licence and insurance - which was incorrect.

A spokesman for Cumbria Roads Police said: "Even during a severe storm, where emergency services are stretched across the county, I still have to deal with people like this.

"Disqualified and without insurance.

"He said, "I didn't know I was disqualified" lying face. Vehicle seized and reported."
