    A household in Devon were left shocked last week when cops turned up at the door to deliver their KFC takeaway.

    The original delivery driver, meanwhile, had been pulled over en route to the address after being caught 'speeding through Newton Abbot', reports LADbible.

    The car was subsequently seized after it came to light that it was uninsured.

    But dedicated officers refused to disappoint and continued the fast food's journey themselves via a member of their neighbourhood team – and all in good time too, arriving hot.

    Later in the evening, Newton Abbot Police took to social media to warn residents of the consequences of not having the correct policy or no insurance at all.

    The statement read: "On Friday this vehicle caught officers attention whilst speeding through Newton Abbot, it was on its way to deliver some food but the driver didn’t have insurance so the car was seized.

    "Luckily the KFC was delivered by our neighbourhood team so it didn’t go cold.

    "We dealt with many vehicles on the same evening all of which were either not insured at all or incorrectly insured so please check your policies so you don’t end up with 6 points on your licence and a £300 fine.

    "It's illegal to drive a vehicle on a road or in a public place without at least third party insurance."

    It continued: "Even if the vehicle itself is insured, if you’re not correctly insured to drive it you could be considered to be driving without insurance and could get penalised.

    "You also need to check your insurance covers you for the correct use. If you're using your vehicle for business purposes this won't automatically be covered.

    "Not all insurance policies renew automatically so always check the details of your policy and when it ends."
