A car with its entire front bumper ripped off was stopped by police for being in a “dangerous condition”.

Officers from the Norfolk and Suffolk Roads and Armed Policing Team Tweeted a picture of white Ford vehicle, which was stopped in Ipswich on Thursday, November 8.

The driver was given a traffic offence report (TOR) by police over the incident.

Officers later Tweeted: “This vehicle was stopped by an RP unit in Ipswich this morning, unsurprisingly due to its condition.

“Driver has since been issued with a TOR for dangerous condition.”

Under section 163 of the Road Traffic Act 1988, police have the power to stop a vehicle at any time and they do not need to give a reason.

Failing to stop for officers is a criminal offence.

Those given TORs can end up with a one-off fine or have the matter sent to court for a hearing.
