Andy Hugill, a digital PCSO for North Yorkshire Police, said: "It also includes a warning that this is the last reminder it will issue you and a dodgy link to fill out a form to be 'up to standard with the DVLA legal requirements.'

"You can forward scam emails to report@phishing.gov.uk and phishing websites can be reported to the National Cyber Security Centre."
