Safety Camera Officers saw the Range Rover Sport travelling between Malton and Pickering over the bank holiday weekend on April 5 and were unable to obtain a speed reading.

Despite multiple attempts, only an error message was read when officers tried to obtain the car's speed. An investigation was launched and a review of the footage meant officers determined that the car was interfering with police camera equipment.

A Traffic Bureau Constable attended the address of the vehicle owner earlier today and found that a jamming device was installed and seized the car.
