Lincolnshire police using an unmarked HGV stopped more than 100 vehicles during a week-long operation on the A1 near Grantham this month.

The sting operation saw 124 vehicles stopped during the week of action, with a total of 141 offences found have been committed.

They included 51 people not wearing seatbelts, 23 drivers using mobile phones and one case of drink and drug driving.

Inspector Jason Baxter from Lincolnshire Police said: “It’s not about catching people out, it’s just another tactic we will use to try to identify offences.”

He added: “If we didn’t catch anyone this week, that would be a success. We need people to understand that their actions do have consequences.”

The lorry cab (pictured) was loaned to police forces by National Highways and is one of three loaned to police forces by National Highways as part of Operation Tramline.

It is the second time in 2024 that the HGV has been used as part of patrols on the A1.

During the first operation, over four days in January, almost 100 driving offences were spotted.
