Glyndwr Wyn Richards was caught at the wheel of a silver Volkswagen Passat with a Skoda Octavia perched on top as he drove through an industrial estate in Aberystwyth.

He pleaded guilty at Aberystwyth Magistrates' Court on August 28 to using a vehicle in a way likely to cause danger or injury.

The 51-year-old was ordered to pay a fine of £80, a £30 victim surcharge and £85 in costs - although he was given credit for his early guilty plea.

Writing on Twitter after Richards was caught, Dyfed-Powys Police said: "That's no way to move a second vehicle."
