A driver who got behind the wheel uninsured "to see a woman they met on Tinder" has had their vehicle seized, Dorset Police have said.

Traffic officers in west Dorset were alerted to the vehicle using onboard numberplate recognition technology.

When stopped by police, the driver of the car, a Mazda RX-8, admitted to having no insurance.

"The vehicle was seized, not sure if they got to their date", a police spokesman said.
