Officers from Pudsey Police Station have carried out stop checks on 30 vehicles on Canal Road, Armley as part of Operation Dodgegill.

Officers issued tickets of £100 each to driver and a passenger for not wearing a seatbelt and to the same vehicle another £100 ticket and three points on the licence for a bald tyre.

A driver was issued with vehicle defect rectification scheme for not displaying a number plate where it should be.

HM Revenue & Customs found a vehicle to be using red diesel, a dyed gas oil for registered agricultural or construction vehicles such as tractors, excavators and cranes. The driver may face a fine of £540.

Partner agencies such as the Driver & Vehicle Standards Agency DVSA and HMRC Road Fuel Testing Unit were also in attendance.
