Police were left shocked last night after finding a huge road roller inside a stolen Transit van near Meadowhall.
The road roller had been reported stolen from Leicestershire earlier in the evening and was seen being loaded into the back of the van.
It was eventually spotted by Road Policing Group units on the M1 near Meadowhall before being pulled over.
Police were left shocked to discover the huge road roller inside of the van.
An SYP Operational Support spokesperson said: "Road roller stolen from Leicestershire this evening and seen being loaded into the back of a Transit van.
The van was seen on the M1 and stopped by RPG units near Meadowhall. Definitely not the way to transport a road roller.
"But that's the least of the worries for the driver as the Transit was stolen and on false plates...."
