A dozy driver who labelled their car as 'dirty and cheap' was pulled over by cops after they were spotted carrying a heavy load on the roof.

Neighbourhood officers on patrol in Ely, Cambridgeshire stopped the vehicle after finding it "in a position likely to cause danger" before finding it had a host of other issues, reports CambridgeshireLive.

Among more serious problems, the less-than-clean silver car was plastered with dozens of strange stickers across the front of its wingmirrors, its rear side windows, its sunroof and part of the windscreen.

One simply read "kinky dirty and cheap", while another at the front of the car showed a short tagline that said "one step up from the gutter".

The car came to the cops' attention after it was seen with a pallet of heavy goods strapped to the roof and no registration number on the front.

The heavy load appeared to cause the roof of the car to cave in slightly, leaving it in a likely position "to cause danger".

Officers checking records then found the shabby vehicle did not have any car insurance.

The driver was reported for no insurance, dangerous driving and "using a motor vehicle on a road with a load which was in a position likely to cause danger", according to Cambridgeshire Constabulary.

Cambridgeshire Constabulary posted a photograph of the dangerous driver on Facebook with the caption: "Can anyone spot anything right with this car?". The line below said: "Us neither!".

Local residents took a dim view of the vehicle's occupant in the comments, with one writing: "Well done officers. Don't like to think what could have happened if that car had been allowed to continue."

Another gave some food for thought as they reflected: "How did they actually get it on the roof. Imagine if it had collapsed in the driver."
