A tractor driver was pulled over on the NDR after police noticed parts of a shed, which was being transported on a trailer, were falling off.

The Norfolk Road Casualty Reduction Team (RCRT) stopped the driver in Norwich on Tuesday, April 26. 

Officers first noticed the vehicle as parts of a shed, being transported on a trailer, were falling off as the vehicle moved.

After stopping the vehicle, it was discovered that the trailer tyres were more than 10 years old and defective.  

The trailer parking brake system was also seized up.

The use of the vehicle required the driver to hold a HGV C+E licence, which they did not have.

There were also no driving record kept, which is another requirement.
