Caravans seized after Sutton Bank trip

Caravans are banned from travelling up or down Sutton Bank.

Two caravans have been seized by police today after coming to officers' attention as they were driven up Sutton Bank.

Caravans are prohibited from going up or down Sutton Bank due to its steep gradient and hairpin bend. An alternative route is signposted through Coxwold and Ampleforth.

At 10am this morning, officers stopped two caravans which had travelled up the bank. Police say it then emerged that neither of them had the correct licence to tow the caravans anyway.

Both drivers were reported for driving other than in accordance with their licences, and the caravans were seized by police.
