A CAR with cloned number plates has been seized and recovered by police officers outside Whitchurch.

Officers from North Shropshire Safer Neighbourhood Team (SNT) posted on X – formerly Twitter – on Friday to say they had taken the car into possession after someone had reported it where it had been abandoned in Ash, near Whitchurch.


Officers said that it was without MOT, tax and insurance and then found to have cloned licence plates.

They said: “Whitchurch SNT have seized this vehicle from Ash after it was reported to us as being abandoned, having no tax, MOT or Insurance.

“Upon our arrival it was also confirmed to be on cloned plates.”
