POLICE have joked the driver of a blue Audi A3 may have been ‘reliving a youth spent at theme park Camelot’ after he was found with a large piece of wood sticking several feet out the back of his boot.

Officers issued the man with a traffic offence report and removed the wood from the vehicle in Blackburn.

A spokesman said: “We wondered if this driver was planning some DIY or reliving a youth spent at Camelot watching jousting. The driver didn’t realise how dangerous this plank was both to himself and the public.”
