A man has been arrested after driving on a motorway in Northern Ireland in a car without an offside front tyre.

Officers from the PSNI’s Roads Policing Strategic Unit responded to several calls from concerned members of the public who’d spotted the car on the M2 on Easter Sunday.

A police spokesperson said: “While others were eating chocolate eggs on Easter Sunday morning, this driver thought it would be a good idea to drive this vehicle in this condition.

“Thanks to numerous reports from members of the public, officers from Roads Policing Strategic Unit E section stopped this vehicle on the M2.

“As a result one person was arrested for driving a vehicle in a dangerous condition as well as other offences. This driver will now have to explain their actions to a court and face the consequences.”
