Motorists received warnings about overhanging loads on top of their vehicles after a police officer tweeted images of a Honda balancing a green shed on the roof.

The driver was spotted in the centre of Newton Abbot, Devon, securing the shed with just a signle rope and no roof rack.

Posting on Twitter, Sergeant Olly Taylor of the Devon and Cornwall force, said: “If you’re carrying a load on your vehicle please make sure it’s secure.

“This was held in place with a single rope and no roof rack.

“This could have ended far worse than a ticket for an insecure load.”

The driver received a fixed penalty notice, meaning he could be find up to £200 payable within 28 days.
