Police have condemned the actions of an "utterly ridiculous" driver after spotting them allowing a child to stand on the front seat of their car.

The youngster was seen standing on the back of a pram which had been placed on the front passenger seat as a car seat.

Greater Manchester Police (GMP) pulled the vehicle over after spotting it in Gorton, Manchester, on 18 May.

The force then shared a picture to social media, where officers said the driver had been reported.

Officers posted on the GMP Traffic X account: "The driver past a #GMPMotorcycleUnit officer on Woodland Avenue, Gorton with the child standing on the front seat.

"You would be mistaken in thinking that’s a car seat. It is in fact, the back of a pram with a seatbelt wrapped around.

"Driver reported. Utterly ridiculous #fatal4."
