A man has been jailed for six months after being found on the M1 near St Albans with three sets of cloned number plates.
Manjit Tanawa, 37, of Ashbourne Road, Derby, was caught on the M1 between Junction 6 for St Albans and Junction 6a with three sets of cloned number plates on Thursday, January 5, intending to use them to commit fraud.
Tanawa, who pleaded guilty, was sentenced at St Albans Magistrates Court on Tuesday, March 14.
