Police have described a man caught driving a car completely stuffed with branches as “absolute madness”.
The driver was stopped in Stockport and was reported for a number of driving offences, the BBC has reported.
PC Andy Monaghan said the man’s visibility and access to the gear stick was blocked.
PC Andy Monaghan added: “He thought he’d be fine, but the weather was heavy and he had limited control.”
“I wasn’t shocked because I’ve previously worked in traffic [but] it was absolute madness.”
The motorist had been carrying out work for an elderly couple and was taking the garden waste to a tip.
The man was made to empty the car before continuing on his way, which meant he had had to make several trips to the tip.
