A driver has been caught on camera with his pet dog at the wheel of his car.

Another motorist coming the other way was astonished to spot the terrier at the steering wheel on a busy road in Carmarthenshire.

The shocked driver snapped a picture of the terrier in the driving seat - and sent it to police.

Police tracked down the car - a Toyota not a Rover - through the registration plate to find the car owner.

Now the dog owner could face court action for dangerous driving over the terrier stunt.

Police say the dog was snapped at the wheel on a road at Llangennech, near Llanelli, South Wales.

It was reported to us by a concerned member of the public on Monday, May 23, in Llangennech, whose passenger managed to get the photograph.

We were concerned not only for the welfare of the dog should the vehicle be in an accident but whether the driver was in proper control.

The vehicle was traced to an address in Llanelli where the driver fully cooperated with police and admitted the offence and was reported for the offences.
