A man has been arrested after driving through York in this.

He was stopped by the York North Neighbourhood Police Team who saw the bashed-up Honda Civic in the city.

The front driver’s side had been badly damage in a collision. It is missing a wing mirror, the rear bumper was hanging off, and the side was badly scraped.

North Yorkshire traffic officer Mark Patterson assisted on the arrest.

He tweeted that the driver had been given a roadside drugs test and tested positive “which may explain why he thought his vehicle was roadworthy!”

The car has been taken off the road and a sample of the driver’s blood is heading for the forensics lab for analysis.
