A man has been caught driving just one week before his ban would have ended.

Derbyshire Roads Police said the man had thought his ban had finished.

He was also found to be driving without insurance.

Police seized the van.

The man was caught by police in Peartree, near Derby.

A tweet by the roads police said: "Caught driving with one week of his disqualification left. He thought it had finished but funnily enough had made no application to get his licence back. Must have thought the van was insured too, it was not. #Seized."
