Driver caught with sofas and chairs strapped to car roof

Police have shared a photo of a car they stopped in Glasgow which had sofa chairs strapped to the roof.

The furniture was wedged into the vehicle above and below the open boot, secured with only a few straps.

Police said the driver was given advice about how to "transport couches in the future".

The 49-year-old man was reported to prosecutors in connection with the vehicle's load.

The officers shared the picture on Twitter, captioned with #TheMoreYouLookTheWorseItGets.

Comments on the post included a "10/10 for effort" and many others making reference to Rowan Atkinson's comedy character Mr Bean.

In one scene of the episode Do-It-Yourself Mr Bean, Atkinson's character straps an armchair to the roof and drives his Mini from it using a mop.
