A driver in Wiltshire has been reported for having a Badminton Horse Trial hedge hanging out of her car window.

Officers from the Road Policing Unit pulled over a vehicle on Monday, May 13, after they spotted a large hedge protruding out of the car windows which was completely blocking the driver's near side view.

The hedge was seen as a significant safety risk and when further enquiries were made, it was established that the greenery was in fact a hedge from the Badminton Horse Trials which had taken place from Wednesday, May 8 to Sunday, May 12.
