Police seize a vehicle after finding a car meet-up at Victoria Retail Park in Nottingham

A car was seized by police after officers patrolling a Nottingham retail park broke into a car meeting.

On Sunday evening (April 11), officers from the Gedling Neighborhood Police Team (NPT) and the Nottinghamshire Police Special Team patrolled near Victoria Retail Park in Netherfield.

When they got to the retail park, the officers were involved in a car meeting and also found people who were anti-social in the area.

The police present seized a car after it was determined that the driver did not have a driver’s license or insurance.

A tweet published by both police teams reads: “Gedling NPT and the Specialty Police Team were on duty at a Netherfield retail park on Sunday evening to address reported anti-social behavior issues and car meetings.

“Our special team confiscated a vehicle because the driver did not have a driver’s license or insurance. The driver reported.”

The car meeting is not the first such incident in Nottinghamshire in recent days.

Police reported 300 cars after they were found at East Midlands Parkway station on Sunday evening (April 11).

That came less than a week after a large car meeting caused disruption on Nottingham’s roads and resulted in Nottinghamshire Police issuing a 24-hour dissemination warrant.

This would help prevent reckless drivers and hit more potential Covid-damaging cars.

Neighborhood Inspector Craig Berry said, “While we can of course understand people’s desire to be with friends again, the government and our health colleagues remain cautious.

“We want to remind people that we are not completely excluded from lockdown measures and that Covid-19 remains a threat.

“We are working with organizers, the local authority and other partners to make these events as safe and crime-free as possible.

“If necessary, we will confiscate vehicles and impose fines in accordance with the coronavirus legislation. In addition to this action, we are working with nearby companies to discuss changes that can be made to security arrangements to prevent such gatherings from occurring in the future.

“We have issued tickets on a number of occasions in the past and we may continue to do so.”
