A BMW driver was pulled over by police for driving with a huge bed wedged in the back seat.
The silver BMW was stopped by Essex Police after officers spotted the double bed in the back of the car on Tuesday.
The bed-frame, complete with mattress, had been lodged in the back by the driver.

The BMW driver was pulled over by police for driving with a huge bed wedged in the back seat. She told Essex Police it was OK as it was wedged in the seat. Twitter users were quick to pile criticism on the driver
Essex Police tweeted the image on November 5 claiming the woman driving defended herself by saying: ‘It’s wedged in the seat so it’s ok.’
But police disagreed, sharing the shocking image with the face palm emoji.
Essex Police Operational Support Group said: ‘Proactive work in Basildon and Clacton today.

‘Some of the work based on traffic stops included positive stop and search for drugs, 2 drug drivers, seized for no insurance and an insecure load…she said ‘It’s wedged in the seat so it’s okay!’
Twitter users were quick to pile criticism on the driver.
One person tweeted said: ‘That BMW is just beyond a joke, the mentality of people is absolutely baffling.’
Another shocked Twitter user said: ‘Money can buy you a convertible BMW and a big bed but it won’t buy you intelligence.’
Police did not say what action was taken against the driver – but causing a danger from distribution of load in a car can lead to a £100 fine.
