POLICE have stopped a car being driven without a front tyre on a Pembrokeshire road.

A 2001 registered white Peugeot was stopped by Dyfed-Powys Police last night, as it was being driven without a front tyre on the driver's side.

The 17-year-old driver, who only passed their test in November, was spotted driving the car through Eglwyswrw, with sparks flying from the wheels by a member of the public, who called the police.

The remains of the tyre sidewall were found inside the car, and the wing panel was also missing.

The front bumper of the car was also missing, with wiring and the radiator exposed.

A spokesperson for Dyfed-Powys Police said: "Police received a call raising concerns about a vehicle being driven in High Street, Crymych, heading towards Eglwyswrw, with sparks coming from the wheels.  Police located the vehicle parked up in Eglwyswrw.

"The vehicle was seized under section 165 and a PG9 prohibition order issued upon it."

A tweet by Dyfed-Powys Police's Pembrokeshire Road Policing Unit also said the car was driving without insurance or an MOT, which expired in July last year.

The driver was reported for driving a vehicle in a dangerous condition.
