Police took to social media to share their anger when they stopped this car yesterday.

Burnley and Padiham Police posted on their Facebook page about the incident.

A Lancashire Police spokesman said: "You can probably imagine our ire when we stopped this vehicle to find two children aged two and four stood on the back seat unrestrained.

"The vehicle wasn’t even fitted with child seats.

"The driver claimed he was taking them into town to buy some..

"Needless to say, this is extremely dangerous and the driver is facing points and a Social Services referral."
