A van driver stopped on the M6 during the coronavirus lockdown told motorway police he was going to buy a pizza oven.
The motorist was pulled over by the North West Motorway Police on the busy stretch of road by Knutsford, in Cheshire, earlier this morning (April 2).
He told officers he had travelled to Manchester to pick up the oven.
A North West Motorway Police spokesman said: Driver of this van was stopped on the M6 after he had been to collect a pizza oven from Manchester.
“After enquiries showed that he had no insurance or licence the only thing on our take away menu was his van.”
Officers ended their social media post with a message telling motorists to stay at home during the coronavirus lockdown.
The driver – who has not been named – was stopped just days after officers caught a motorist on a 224-mile trip to pick up £15 worth of windows he bought on eBay.
Due to strict Covid-19 regulations brought in by Prime Minister Boris Johnson, motorists are told to only leave their homes for essential journeys.
