Police have escorted a car off the motorway and issued it with prohibition order after it was found to be unroadworthy.

The vehicle cannot be driven again until highlighted problems are fixed and a new MOT certificate has been issued.

Leicestershire Roads Policing Unit saw the car on the southbound hard shoulder near junction 23 for Loughborough.

Officers found the bonnet and a headlight tied down by bandages, the windscreen badly cracked and front bodywork missing.

The police unit tweeted: “This car was stopped the other night.

“The bonnet is held down by bandages, as is one of the headlights.

“The windscreen is cracked from the bonnet flipping up and to top it all they had a battery booster under the bonnet while driving down the motorway.
