South Yorkshire Police have had another success with Stopstick after stopping a LGV travelling on the wrong side of the road down the M1.
The large Iveco rigid LGV had cloned plates, and failed to stop.
Stopstick was deployed and brought the speed down to 20mph. The driver lost control allowing police to capture and detain the occupants.
