Lorry carrying broken bricks and rubble stopped by police for being too heavy

A LORRY was stopped by police for being too heavy.

Officers from Thames Valley Police spotted the blue truck on Spring Road in Abingdon yesterday afternoon.

Pictures taken by officers at the scene show the lorry carrying lots of heavy broken bricks, rocks and debris in the back.

Officers weighed it at a nearby weighbridge and discovered it was over 11 tonne in weight, nearly 50 per cent over the legal maximum vehicle weight of 7.5 tonne.

11 tonne is equivalent to about 20 horses.

Writing on Twitter, Thames Valley Police roads policing unit said: “The driver is facing a court date as he also didn’t have the correct licence.”
