A DRIVER on his way to Wales for a holiday had his car seized by police.

The man was stopped by Dorset Police's No Excuse Team on the A35 on Friday.

A spokesman for the team said: "We seized a Toyota for no insurance. The driver stated he thought it had automatically renewed.

"It hadn't as he had moved three times without updating the insurance company so when they wrote to him with no response they didn't renew it.

"He also hadn't paid the tax since February, with the same excuse.

"The driver was heading to Wales for a holiday.

"Please check your documents in advance of driving."
