Blackburn with Darwen's tac op's unit has taken the Volkswagen Golf off of the road after receiving numerous complaints about its manner of driving.

A spokesperson for the police said: "The driver believed it was acceptable to drive around like he was a racing driver and Rev the engine unnecessarily whilst stopped at traffic lights at midnight.

"This sort of behaviour causes distress to local residents and it will not be tolerated. "

The car has now been seized and will now be subject to Operation Revoke which will see it returned to the finance company.

The spokesperson added: "If you want to drive a performance vehicle, do it responsibly and have some consideration for the community. The roads are not your race track, use it properly or lose it indefinitely"
