“Making a 30-mile (48-kilometre) journey at 30mph (48km/h), with hazards on to warn people of the danger? - Erm... No!” police tweeted.

Police reminded drivers to not only make sure the vehicle they were using was suitable for moving goods, but to also make sure they were properly secured.

People unimpressed by 'unbelievable' driver

Twitter users were left shaking their heads at the driver’s actions.

“Would have loved to have heard the exchange between the officer and driver,” one woman tweeted.

One man called it “unbelievable”, while another person expressed their disbelief, saying: "What a muppet!"

“Does this driver possess a brain?” another woman tweeted.
