Police seize homemade “heap of junk” being driven around during COVID-19 lockdown

A homemade Go Kart labelled a “heap of junk” by police officers was seized after they found it being driven around in the St Helens area.

The vehicle seized by Merseyside’s St Helens Police unit was immediately taken off the road. The driver of the vehicle was reported for having no driver's licence and driving without valid insurance.

The driver was also reported for breach of the COVID-19 health protection regulations put in place to ensure only essential journeys are being made by the public.

A St Helens Police spokesperson wrote on Facebook: “This heap of junk was seized by Officers earlier this evening in Haydock after being driven on a road.

“The driver has now been reported for summons for driving without a licence, driving without insurance and also a breach of the health protection regulation (COVID 19).

“I am sure you will agree, driving a homemade Go Kart around a residential area is not an essential journey.“
