Van bought "off some bloke on Facebook" was the vehicular equivalent of a "patchwork quilt"
This Ford Transit is an example of why you should do your due diligence when buying a used vehicle, particularly from 'some bloke on Facebook'.
The South Yorkshire Police Operational Support team reported the registration on this vehicle came back to a Transit, which had a doppelganger elsewhere in the country.
The visible chassis numbers didn't relate to anything, and certainly didn't match the displayed registration; and the stamped number on the chassis was to something else yet again.
