HILLARIOUS pictures show a classic Jaguar that was stopped by the police because it was falling to bits on the road.
There are many reasons a police officer may chose to pull over a car - bald tyres, no insurance and reckless driving to name a few.
In what was probably a first for Blackpool Police, officers had to pull a car over because it looked like it came fresh from the scrap heap.
he vintage XJ Series was clearly past its former best with heavily scratched grey bodywork and paint.
Photographs also show that the knackered banger was missing a rear window, rear lights, a sunroof and wing mirrors as well as not having number plates, door handles or working front lights.
The police officers clearly saw the funny side sharing the images of the battered Jaguar, driven by a 55-year-old man, online.
However, the constabulary did warn about the dangers of cars like these being driven on UK roads.
PC Matt Plummer, of Blackpool Police, said: "Around 2pm on Tuesday officers stopped a vehicle in Talbot Road, Blackpool, on suspicion of not being roadworthy.
"On inspection the vehicle, a Jaguar car, was found to have one mirror, no lights, damaged bodywork, no number plates, windows missing and no front or rear bumper.
"Lancashire Constabulary is committed to making the county safer by reducing casualties, targeting criminals and increasing confidence on the county's roads.
"The car clearly presented a risk to the both the driver and other motorists.
"The owner of the Jaguar, a 55-year-old man from Blackpool, was given a fixed penalty notice and ordered to have the car recovered."
