Officers from the Central Motorway Policing Group have arrested two males after motorists called them to a heavy goods vehicle that had broken down on a live lane on the M6 motorway – near junction 9.
When officers conducted a safety check on the load, they found two Range Rovers which had been ‘chopped up’.
Both vehicles had been stolen from Hertfordshire and Essex only days before the incident (7th October).
Further checks on the driver by officers at the scene revealed that he had been disqualified from driving.
The male only had one leg and was operating the clutch on the manual lorry with a crutch.
Both the driver of the HGV and his passenger were arrested for various offences at the scene.
