POLICE had to issue a warning to a driver about the dangers of having a bed hanging out of their car.

Lancashire Police's Tactical Operations Unit tweeted about the incident, which happened on Saturday morning in Hapton.


They found the Jaguar car with a divan and single mattress sticking out of the boot.

They added: "Luckily they left the pillows and duvet at home. Very strong words of advice given and the bed was removed. We’re now hoping for a quiet night rather than a silent night."
