A CAR was seized by police after a motorist was caught driving without a licence.
Police stopped the car in Seaford on Saturday, April 30, after it was flagged for having no insurance.
Following a conversation with the driver of the vehicle, officers discovered the driver also did not have a licence.
The car was seized by police and the driver will be summonsed to court.
A Lewes Police spokeswoman said: “Officers from your Neighbourhood Policing Team spotted this car being driven in Seaford.
“It flashed up as having no insurance, so we stopped it to have a chat with the driver. Turns out not only did he not have insurance, he also didn’t have a licence.
“Car seized and driver will be summonsed to court.”
The car was pulled over as part of Operation Downsway.
Last week, a motorist was arrested for driving while drunk and high on cocaine with a child in the car.
