Police seize vehicle driven dangerously at Swindon car meet

POLICE have seized a car as part of a crackdown on bad behaviour at car meets in the town.

Operation Staysail was launched after the Wiltshire force received several calls about dangerous driving, speeding and antisocial behaviour at the gatherings.

On Saturday, the vehicle pictured was seized by officers because the owner had breached a previous warning and drove it dangerously during a meet.

Sergeant Joel Coombes said: "We are focused on cracking down on individuals who participate in disruptive car meets.

"Not only will we proactively patrol incidents but we will use all evidence available to us to prosecute offenders and seize their vehicles.

"These car meets cause disruption and can carry considerable risks to the both the driver and members of the public."

Anyone with information regarding any disruptive car meets should call police on 101.
