Officers noticed the car 'struggling' on the M66 near Bury, Greater Manchester, at around 1.50am today (Wednesday) and were astonished when they realised the vehicle had no front tyres.

The traffic police were flabbergasted even further when a breath test revealed the driver had 196mg of alcohol per 100ml of breath - almost six times the legal maximum of 35mg.

Sharing their shock on Twitter, Greater Manchester Police said: "Driver stopped by #traffic on the M66 SB prior to Jct 2 when they noticed a vehicle struggling to drive as it had NO front tyres!! No surprise when the driver was arrested after providing a roadside breath test of 196!! #fatal5 #nonefortheroad #XT"


While it seems fairly unbelievable that someone could drive a car without noticing it was missing a tyre or two, this isn't the first time this has happened.

Just a few weeks ago, coppers in Rotherham caught a man driving along with only three tyres.

Upon pulling the car over, police discovered that the driver of the Peugeot was 'incredibly drunk' - but this wasn't all he was arrested for. The driver also had an expired license, no insurance, had left a road traffic collision and not shown up to court twice.
