The DVLA went into meltdown yesterday when it tried clamp Camborne’s untaxed motor vehicles.
The operation was shut down just half an hour from starting when they ran out of wheel clamps.
DVLA boss, Julian Jury, who was leading the exercise said, “We arrived at the west side of Camborne at 10am, by 10.30am we had used up all 100 clamps, we’d only made it down one street I’ve never seen anything like it!”
The Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency will be returning to the town when they can afford more clamps. They remind all drivers that their cars must have road tax or they could be taken off the road and crushed.
