Driver in a load of trouble after cops pull him over

It wasn’t so much what was WRONG with a car police pulled over – the real detective work was find what was RIGHT with it!
The Toyota, stopped by East Cambridgeshire Police, prompted the officers involved to ask :”Can anyone spot anything right with this car?”
Jokingly they added ‘us neither’ before launching into a list of what WAS wrong with it.
Building materials ( the man is thought to be working on a new housing estate nearby) were badly loaded on the roof.
Use of a car “with a load which was in a position likely to cause danger,” was how they summed it up.
Further checks revealed the driver – stopped in New Barns, Ely - had no insurance.
And, say police, he is being questioned and reported for dangerous driving.

They also declined comment on a sticker on the rear.
“The sole purpose of building this car was to p*** you off”.
