On March 8, at about 2.15pm, Derbyshire Police’s roads policing unit reported they had stopped two Ford Transits at their M1 check-site.
The pair of self-employed couriers were delivering for what officers said was a ‘well-known parcel company’ – and both were found to be uninsured.
The DRPU tweeted: “Your parcels will unfortunately be delayed. No doubt the courier company will be upset we’ve stopped them. Two words – due diligence.”
