A MULTI-agency operation targeting people carrying illegal waste and possibly involved in metal thefts has taken place.
The operation targeted vehicles at the White Lund Industrial Estate and at Morecambe Road.
Operation Boat included staff from the police, HM Revenue and Customs, VOSA and Department of Work and Pensions.
Light commercial vehicles were subject to checks from those agencies and any offences discovered were acted upon.
During the day last Thursday, nine vehicles were prohibited from being driven due their unsafe condition.
