A motorist who borrowed their mother-in-law's Porsche had their car seized after being caught speeding down the motorway.

Police say the driver "was going too quick" down the M27 when they were stopped by officers earlier this morning.

It turns out they had also got behind the wheel of the black Porsche Macan with an expired licence and no insurance.

In a tweet, a police spokesperson said the car was seized and the driver was issued with a ticket.
