More than 80 drivers have been stopped and spot checked by police tackling dangerous vehicles in Northumberland.
Operation Gatsby was carried out by Morpeth Neighbourhood Policing Team on October 10. Officers were looking for defective and untaxed vehicles.
Two drivers were summonsed, one for no insurance and the other for failing to wear a seatbelt.
Four vehicles had defects so serious that officers immediately issued four prohibition notices, while one car had a tyre so worn that he had to replace it and have it re-checked.
