A vehicle can be seized:

The details of any vehicles seized will be published here and also displayed in the Town Hall. The information will be displayed on the first working day after the vehicle has been seized and will be displayed for at least 15 days after that.
The police and the registered keeper will be notified in writing that the vehicle has been seized.
