TRUCKERS from the continent were shocked to traffic cops from their own backyard inspecting lorries on the A55 yesterday.

Four Polish traffic officers manned the Vehicle Operator Services Agency (VOSA) with North Wales counterparts at the Dalar Hir VOSA weighbridge station near Bodedern yesterday, as part of an exchange programme.

PC Rob Owen said: "It's a way of exchanging different techniques of enforcing speed limits, mobile phone bans the wearing of seatbelts and checking road worthiness of vehicles."

Warrant officer Pacek Bartosz from Warsaw, said: "We've only met one Polish driver here today, he was very surprised to see us."

Around 50 lorries were inspected.
