A spokesperson for the Warwickshire Rural Crime Team said: "Usually we would opt for a quiet word in the driver's shell (ear) in such circumstances.

"However it was clear the driver was out using the rural roads of Warwickshire like it was their personal race track, with little to no regard for other road users.

"As a result the vehicle was seized and the driver reported for the offence."

Bu that was not all - the police had a further bit of advice to give to the driver.

"We'd also suggest the driver takes a good look at the underside of the car if they get it back, I've seen less rust on boats at the bottom of the sea" they added.
