Police constable discovers car in Sussex which has not been taxed for eight years

Police have discovered a car in Sussex which has not been taxed for eight years.

Yesterday, Special Constable Neil Worth from Sussex Roads Police tweeted about the discovery.

He said: "You genuinely can’t make this up - just finished with our prisoner and on the way back we passed this excellent specimen that lit up our in-car ANPR system like a Christmas tree!

"Not been taxed since 2011! #SeizedIt #OpExcise #NotOnMyWatch"

Chief Constable Giles York, head of Sussex Police, responded on Twitter, saying: "Magic, thank you Neil".

Some Twitter users questioned why it took so long to find.
