Police described the situation they faced as ‘absolutely outrageous’.
Nottinghamshire Roads Policing Unit said:
‘This car was seen driving in the Ollerton area and reported to us by concerned members of the public.
‘When we heard the radio transmission of a car being driven without a wheel we made our way over.
‘Response officers spotted it first and got it to stop. How it was still moving was quite unbelievable.
‘Even more unbelievable was how far the driver thought he was going to get in it. We then informed him that he wasn’t going anywhere in it.
‘The car was prohibited and the driver reported for the offence.
