Police stopped a driver who wasn’t wearing a seatbelt and had dogs on her lap - all while towing a horsebox.

Officers from Breckand police pulled over a driver who was towing a horsebox in Swaffham town centre this morning (August 3).

They found that, in addition to not wearing a seatbelt, the woman was also driving along with two dogs on her lap.

She was subsequently issued with a Traffic Offence Report (TOR), which could result in her being summonsed to court.

In a post on Twitter, an officer from Breckland police said: "I have just stopped a Horsebox in #Swaffham town centre. The driver wasn't wearing her seatbelt and had two dogs on her lap.

"It was an accident waiting to happen! She has been reported for both offences."
