Once on the side of the road, the motorist gave officers false details in an attempt to get away.

But police noted the details they gave were “of someone 25 years their senior”.

“The reason for this is because the driver is actually serving a three year driving disqualification,” a spokesman for Lancashire Police said.

“Vehicle seized and driver reported.”
