PC Tether said on social media: "This evening I’m out on patrol with PCSO Stevens who covers Penketh and Cuerdley Police Burtonwood and Winwick Police areas to jointly target #RuralCrime #WildlifeCrime #Heritagecrime and #Wastecrime.

"It has been a great opportunity to be shown around by a local officer who has a great geographical knowledge of the area.

"Whilst in the area we have also been focusing on #RuralRoads with numerous vehicles stopped.

"One of the vehicles stopped found that the driver of the vehicle only held a provisional driving licence and had been driving on this since 1993!

"As a result, a summons issued to the driver for the offence of driving whilst not holding a full driving licence and no insurance.

"Further investigation will also be made around the vehicle insurance being void as a result and incorrect details being passed to the insurance company."
