OP ONION: Dozens of law-breakers stopped on Spring Lane

Malvern Editorial 20th Nov, 2014 Updated: 20th Oct, 2016

DOZENS of people were found to be breaking the law when police spent a day stopping vehicles in the middle of Malvern’s main business quarter.

On Wednesday (November 19) officers maintained a checkpoint on Spring Lane targeting unlicensed drivers, illegal waste carriers and people using red diesel – a fuel with a reduced tax levy supposed to be used in agricultural and construction equipment and not on public roads.

In total 35 breaches were uncovered and processed.

The stop-checks were carried out alongside Worcestershire Regulatory Services and HMRC as part of Operation Onion which launched earlier this month aimed at tackling business and rural crime.

PC Cliff Green said: “We identified 35 breaches of various kinds throughout the day and consider it to be quite a success. It sends a message out to those who commit these offences that it won’t be tolerated.”
