The number of cars being clamped because of unpaid road tax has almost doubled since the paper disc was abolished two years ago.

Figures reveal that in the six months leading up to the paper tax discs being scrapped in October 2014, 5,100 motorists were caught each month. That figure has shot up to 9,200 a month over the last six months.
