Traffic cops in Scotland stopped a driver in a Citroen after spotting a bulging tyre described as “the worst we have seen”.

Posting on X, formerly Twitter, Roads Policing Scotland said: “This is by far one of the worst we have seen.

“If your tyre is bulging it means the sidewalls have failed and it is likely to deflate rapidly – putting you and other road users in extreme danger.”

The driver was issued with a Conditional Offer of Fixed Penalty Notice (COFPN) and the vehicle was removed from the road.
