MAGISTRATES have seized more than £5,000 from a man who was unable to account for bags of cash found when his Vauxhall Zafira was stopped by police on the M1.

The 38-year-old, from Hull, was stopped near Clowne, North Derbyshire, last March.

He was arrested on suspicion of money laundering but later released without charge – but because he was unable to account for the cash Derbyshire Police asked Chesterfield magistrates to use the Proceeds of Crime Act to force him to forfeit it.
