A driver has been pulled over after patching up his smashed car window with blue plastic sheeting - leaving only a small hole to see his mirror.

Police stopped the vehicle just after midday on Saturday in Northampton after receiving reports of the bizarre installation, which was held together by tape.

Despite the improvised solution obscuring almost all of his view out of the driver's side window of the white Toyota, officers said the driver "thought it was actually OK".

PC Dave Lee, who took a picture of the car, which was stopped on Wellingborough Road, commented on Twitter that it was an "interesting concept".

The Safer Roads Team officer for Northamptonshire added the driver had been written to by the central ticket office and could face a fine or a court appearance.

Optometrist spots tumour and saves life of Northampton teenager

Watch a report by ITV News Anglia's Claire McGlasson.

A teenager from Northampton is urging everyone to book a sight test after a routine appointment saved her life.

Lauren Whittington says eye tests aren't just for people who need glasses.

Her optometrist picked up symptoms which showed she had a brain tumour.

Within three hours she and her family were told that doctors would have to operate.

The pressure that I spotted behind Lauren's eyes set me off to think that something wasn't right.
