Motorists with custom number plates are facing fines today after a police operation.

Cleveland Police Special Constabulary were out across Teesside on Wednesday evening, targeting vehicles which failed to match up to legal standards.

The eight-strong team of roads policing Specials conducted an operation targeting vehicle registration plate and tyre offences.

And most of the fines were handed to drivers who had number plates which did not conform to the rules.

A total of eight fixed penalty notices were issued for registration plate not conforming.
