Police stopped a driver over a messy, unsafe load on the trailer they were pulling.

Officers from the Norfolk and Suffolk Roads and Armed Policing Team (NSRAPT) pulled over the driver on the A47 near Acle. on Thursday morning.

The load was made up of lots of individual items, from bigger items like radiators to smaller pieces of metal.

Straps had been used in an attempt to secure the load, but not enough to satisfy the officers.

NSRAPT said the driver was reported for load offences.
