Motorists are paying for the crimes of uninsured drivers; and there are nearly 1.5 million of them driving around the UK, ITV News has learned.

Uninsured drivers are adding half a billion pounds a year to the insurance costs of law abiding ones; that is £30 each.

They are also five times more likely to be involved in accidents and so police are trying to clamp down on them by seizing vehicles.

140,000 cars have been seized by the police over the past year.
