Inspector Shelley Slarke, who leads the Bradford South Neighbourhood Policing Team, said: “This operation was aimed at those who think they can drive around Bradford in vehicles without taxing or insuring them, as well as those who use the roads to commit crime.

“Criminals should be warned that more of these operations will follow, as we are committed to making Bradford safer for all.”
