Demo Derby car gets pulled over…on the ROAD

Handout photo taken with permission from the Twitter feed of @CPTaskforce of a car pulled over by police, which was still being driven on the roads despite having no windows or mirrors. The banged-up car, which also had extensive damage to all areas of its bodywork, used to be a red Rover but was now a patchwork of blue and yellow. It was stopped by officers in Crewe, Cheshire.

Police in the town tweeted: "Stopped in @PoliceCrewe we kid you not!! Driver reported for having no insurance and using a vehicle in a dangerous condition!! Vehicle seized. It was once a red Rover by the way!"

Police have spoken of their surprise that a battered old car with no windows, plates or mirrors was being driven on roads in England.

The wreck, which had extensive damage to all parts of the bodywork and a unique blue and yellow paint job, was apparently a Rover in its heyday.

It was stopped by Road Policing Unit officers in Crewe.
