Burning bonfire moved on trailer in Thetford
A motorist was pulled over by police for moving a burning bonfire on the back of a trailer.
Norfolk and Suffolk Roads Policing tweeted that eight tonnes of an unspecified material was aboard the trailer, spotted in the Thetford area.
The driver was taking the bonfire to a rubbish pit but had not extinguished it correctly, police said.
A force spokesman said “the risks to road users should have been obvious”.
Police said the driver from Cambridgeshire was stopped on Mundford Road at about 12:00 GMT on Thursday.
The force said: “With nothing stopping the hot embers, or burning items from falling from the trailer, the risks to road users should have been obvious.”
A decision will be made as to what action will be taken against the motorist, it said.
