DVLA officials are having a local blitz on untaxed cars. Over the weekend a number of vehicles in Wellington have been clamped.
It will cost the owners a £200 penalty, £21 per day storage, and a full year’s road tax to get their cars back.
Members of the public can report untaxed vehicles anonymously, either online or by a DVLA hotline. It may be that someone in the town is settling a few old scores in a very public-spirited way!
