A motorist was stopped by police after using bubble wrap to strap a wardrobe to the roof of a car.

The driver was pulled over in Great Yarmouth on Friday, Norfolk officer Sgt Chris Harris revealed on Twitter.

Officers also found a passenger lying beneath wardrobe doors which were being carried inside the car.

Norfolk Police said the method was "quite clearly dangerous" and it was deciding whether to prosecute.

A police spokesman added: "We would encourage drivers to secure items using appropriate fixings and products, as it's quite clearly dangerous and drivers could face possible prosecution."

The passenger was lying beneath the wardrobe doors because the rear car seats had been put in the flat position to get them in the vehicle, Sgt Harris explained.
