Fifteen vehicles were clamped during the latest operation by police targeting motoring offences.

The police – in partnership with the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency – mounted checkpoints in the Armagh and Markethill areas on Thursday.

Police had specifically been targeting untaxed vehicles and other driving offences.

As a result of the operation, a total of 15 vehicles were clamped.

Nine tickets were also issued to drivers for not having tax and a vehicle – found to have been driven by an uninsured driver – was seized.

This was the latest joint operation carried out by the PSNI in the Armagh area.

On Wednesday, officers joined with HM Revenue and Customs in staging road checks across the city.

Three vehicles were found to be running on red diesel and two driven without insurance.
