Police seized a car after a search revealed it contained illicit substances and it had no right to be on the road.

GMP Oldham shared a photo of the black Volkswagen Golf in a post on social media yesterday (March 26).

According to the post on social media the car failed to stop for officers from the Central Neighbourhood Team but these officers found it had been abandoned on Grendon Avenue after a short time.

They seized it after a search revealed illicit substances in the form of Class B drugs and it had no right to be on the road as it was uninsured and it was subject to a Statutory Off Road Notification.
