A DISQUALIFIED driver was caught in a vehicle not registered in this country.

Hampshire Road Police pulled over a Polish-registered right-hand drive Renault Clio in Eastleigh.

Officers discovered the driver had exported the car, and then brought it back to avoid paying UK tax and insurance.

A spokesperson said: "This was the tip of the iceberg however, as he was also disqualified from driving."

The driver has been reported and the vehicle seized.

The Echo has contacted Hampshire Police for further information.
