“A crash waiting to happen,” was how police described this overloaded trailer on the A1 near Peterborough. 

Police pulled over what they described as a “very risky driver” at Sawtry.  

“He had loaded his trailer up with a ‘Heli’ of a lot of chopper parts and pootling along the A1m at 35mph,” said a police spokesperson. 

“He was made to remove the items before continuing his journey and was reported for a number of traffic offences.”
