Two people have been arrested by police after a car was driven along the A47 for around five miles on nothing but broken metal rims.

The tyreless car was found by Norfolk police abandoned in a layby near Dereham.

The car, completely missing two tyres and with its windows smashed, was found on the A47 in Norfolk at about midnight last night after a motorist alerted police.

PC Steve Lee tweeted: “This was driven along the A47 in this shocking condition for approx five miles earlier tonight. Two detained nearby.”

He added: “It’s fortunate that nobody was seriously injured.”

Another Twitter user described the photographs as “amazing”, while one tweeted: “Surprised it even moves.”

One person jokingly replied: “It will buff out.”
