A giant plank of wood has been seized from an Audi in Lancashire after police spotted it poking 4ft from the boot of the car.


Officers pulled over the blue Audi A3 in Blackburn at around 9.30am this morning (June 25) and issued the driver with a TOR (Traffic Offence Report).

The plank, measuring approximately 12ft, had been secured with rope but had been protruding around 4ft into the road as the Audi navigated rush hour traffic.

Police said the wood has since been seized.

The picture has now been posted to the Lancashire Road Police social media channels.

"We wondered if this driver was planning some DIY or reliving a youth spent at Camelot watching jousting", quipped the officers.

The plank of wood, approximately 12ft long, was protruding recklessly from the passenger window and boot
