Police have revealed that penalty points or fines were issued against eight drivers during an operation against illegal taxis in Derry.

A PSNI spokesperson said the crackdown took place over the weekend.

The spokesperson said the operations targeted 'illegal taxis and vehicles with illegal modifications'.

"Eight vehicles were served with either a prohibition notice or issued penalty points and a fine.

"Thankfully most of the hard working drivers in the city are compliant but we will continue to target those who think they can flout the law," added the PSNI spokesperson.
