Police officers and vehicle examiners have been out across the island checking that vehicles are in a road legal condition - as well as carrying out random speed checks, making sure everyone was wearing a seatbelt and no-one was using a mobile phone.

The force says these will continue throughout the year to help reduce the number of accidents and injuries that happen on island roads.

"Road safety is of paramount importance each and every day. We will continue to proactively deploy across the island at times and locations of our choosing to ensure vehicles are safe to be on our roads.

The force is also warning of fake UK £20 notes which have been spotted across the island recently.

Anyone who gets one is asked to take them to their bank.
