Driver facing court over 'totally covered' windscreen

A driver in Birmingham is facing court action after traffic police pulled over a van with the front windscreen almost totally covered with building materials.

Photos of the white van posted on Twitter by West Midlands Police showed strips of plastic resting on its roof, windscreen and bonnet.

It was stopped on Aston Hall Road in Aston just over a week ago.

A 30-year-old woman is now facing being prosecuted for having no insurance and carrying a dangerous load.
