A quick dash to pick up some chicken nuggets has ended up costing an Isle of Wight driver hundreds of pounds.

Police on the Island said a car was seized for allegedly having no insurance.

Hampshire Constabulary said the driver now faces a fine of up to £300, vehicle recovery fees of £150 and 6 points on their driving licence – all for a £2.99 box of nuggets.

For the cost of the fine, you could actually buy 150 boxes of chicken nuggets.
