A DRIVER who stopped to relieve himself on the M65 has been reported to court by police.

The driver who pulled over on the hard shoulder to have a wee will now find himself paying more than a penny to get out of this predicament.

When he was spotted by police inappropriately stopped, it was discovered he had no insurance and was a disquailfied driver.

The Lancashire Road Police tweeted: "A few days ago now, but the driver of this Audi drew attention to himself when he stopped for a wee on the M65 near Colne.

"Unfortunately for him it may well end up costing him more than a penny as checks found he was an uninsured, disqualified driver. Reported to court."
