Cambridgeshire Police officers pulled over a van on the A1 as it looked "very overweight", but they didn't expect sacks of spuds inside.

After the van was pulled over, officers found that it was 45 per cent overweight and full of potatoes.

The driver of the van chipped away some of the weight to bring it back down to a safe measurement before carrying on with their travels.
