They found the tools in the cars, which were both uninsured and seized by police.

In a separate incident, North Yorkshire Police control room reported erratic driving near York last night.

TC Mark Patterson tweeted: “Vehicle located and driver claims his own policy covers him to drive his Dad’s car. It didn’t. Vehicle seized & driver reported.”
