Gardaí have seized a vehicle that was discovered with tax four years out of date.

The driver claimed to be a mechanic fixing the vehicle when gardaí made the discovery.

However they say that no trade plates were used, and so the vehicle was seized.

Trade plates are issued to motor traders in order to use un-taxed or un-registered vehicles on the road in limited circumstances.
