The farm vehicle was impounded after it was found to be using red diesel – duty free fuel only to be used for agricultural purposes.

Police also said the driver could not produce valid insurance at the time.

They tweeted a picture showing a New Holland T6 175 tractor.

This model is listed online as having up to 175hp and weighing around 5.5.tonnes.

One twitter used described it as “pretty nippy.”

The tractor had a large sticker on it saying “seized by police – no insurance”.
