A crackdown on illegal immigrants in the UK has seen almost 27,000 drivers have their licences revoked since 2014.

The figures also found a 22% rise in voided licences in 2016, compared to the year before.

Some people caught had entered the UK illegally, but most obtained a licence while on a legitimate visa and had then illegally overstayed.
