Meanwhile, the RPU has recently snared a recovery truck that was committing an unusual offence.

The vehicle, which was carrying a car on the back, had blue lights fitted to the top of it.

This recovery truck was seized by West Yorkshire Police after officers spotted the blue lights fitted to the roof.
