Officers swooped on Sutton Hill and put both vehicles on the back of a truck after police enquires found them to be cloned.

Cloning a vehicle is when a criminal copies the identity of another vehicle by stealing or duplicating their registration plates.

Often criminals will then use the cloned vehicle to carry out further crime or avoid speeding or parking fines.
