Authorities seize rare super car from learner driver

A rare Lamborghini supercar has been seized after being illegal driven by a learner driver.

The lb157,000 Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder was seen speeding by local authorities in Richmond. An insurance check found that the driver held a provisional license only.

As the insurance on the vehicle only covered full driving licenses the rare vehicle was taken in by Richmond’s Safer Transport Team.

There are only 5 units of the sports car in the UK, with only 50 originally leaving the factory.

A spokesperson for the Metropolitan Police said: “The driver of the high performance sports car will be appearing in court for the driving offences and potentially receiving a driving ban, penalty points and a large fine as a result of his actions.”

The U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration announced a recall of the Gallardo in September last year after a potential fire risk was discovered.

In October an American teenager died after a crash caused the car to catch fire.


Former L16 DEM candidate sells private reg

Former Liberal Democrat politician and recent Labour convert, Andrew Duffield, has put his private number plate up for sale.

Andrew Duffield bought L16 DEM, which reads “LIB DEM”, in 1993 when the L-reg plates were released.

Duffield has removed the number plate from his vehicle “for obvious reasons”, and currently stores it on a retention certificate until a buyer is found.

‘I’m using standard plates and certainly won’t be displaying L16 DEM now!’ He said.

After growing “increasingly angered” by the coalition government failing to “protect the poor and disadvantaged”, Andrew decided to leave the Lib Dems.

Now with Labour, the teacher is on the market for a replacement number plate.

‘I have located LA80 OUR – but unfortunately that won’t become available until 2030 … so I’m now looking out for PRO6 RES.’

Andrew Duffield hopes to stand as MP for Hexham in the next general election.
