Car seized from boy racer in Spalding

Have your say

A crackdown on boy racers in Spalding has continued after a car was seized by police in Holland Market car park.

Police took away a Ford Fiesta from a 19-year-old man who was suspected of driving in an anti-social manner near Sainsbury’s on Thursday evening.

Insp Jim Tyner, community policing inspector for Spalding, said: “The driver had previously received a warning about their driving, so this triggered a law which allows us to seize their vehicle as they have been involved in a subsequent incident.

“Let this be a warning to others involved in anti-social vehicle use and I want people to be reassured that we are taking action to tackle anti-social behaviour that residents say causes them concern.”

Police also dealt with another driver on the same evening for having a defective headlamp.
