Police stopped a lorry on a busy motorway using a LUCOZADE bottle as an indicator

Police have stopped a lorry on a busy motorway using a LUCOZADE bottle as an indicator.

West Yorkshire traffic officers spotted the HGV with the fizzy water bottle on the M62 motorway near Bradford, West Yorks., yesterday afternoon (Sat).

The driver appears to have made a makeshift indicator after breaking his backlight.

As well as the Lucozade bottle indicator the vehicle was over its weight limit, had a brake light not working and a smashed wing mirror.

Police said the driver was fined and prohibited from moving until the weight issue was sorted.
