Nationwide motor scam uncovered in Greater Manchester

A nationwide motoring scam has been uncovered by police carrying out raids across Greater Manchester.

Two men were arrested in connection to the network, which has seen hundreds of motorists avoiding more than 2,000 penalty points and £40,000 in fines.
Police officers raided 11 homes in Tameside and Gorton, seizing computers and documents.

The detained men, both aged 39, have been arrested and are currently being questioned.

The scam centres on people who have avoided convictions for motoring offences – including bans – by making false nominations or causing false information to be provided to police on their behalf.
