Officers found that one driver collected his uninsured friend in an uninsured vehicle - so they reported both of them and seized the vehicles.

Shockingly they also reported that they stopped 55 vehicles, and 18 drivers were reported for a "multitude of offences".

A total of six vehicles were taken off the roads for having no insurance.

A spokesman for Telford Police said: "Team E Telford and Team D North Operational Policing Unit have conducted a traffic operation in Telford.
