West Midlands Police has released footage of a BMW X5 driving along a motorway with two missing tyres as part of a drink-drive crackdown.

The footage shows a suspected drink-driver with two missing wheels trailing sparks along the motorway before smashing into a roadside barrier.

The BMW was seen swerving on the southbound side of the M42 between junctions four and five before hitting a crash barrier at 8am on December 2.

The 24-year-old driving the vehicle admitted dangerous driving, disqualified driving and failing to provide a breath specimen, and was bailed to appear at Birmingham Crown Court for sentencing on January 3.

The incidents were published as West Midland Police Force continue its month-long drink and drug driving Christmas clampdown.

Sergeant Jon Butler said: “We can only hope the message gets through that there are real dangers to getting behind the wheel while under the influence of drink or drugs.

“This is both to drivers and other innocent members of the public.

“We have a zero tolerance approach and our officers are out there 24/7 to catch those who risk the safety, and lives, of themselves and innocent others.

“Drink driving is unacceptable and we will catch and prosecute those who break the law.”
