During the patrol on Sunday, the officers discovered the “dangerously overloaded” pickup truck.

When they spoke to the driver, he informed them that he only had a temporary driver’s license.

Police shared pictures of the black Mitsubishi Trojan at the Cannock gas station with the caption, “Just when you thought you saw it all.”

The pictures show the car on the gas station forecourt, balancing a mountain of wooden slats, plastic chairs, torn out radiators and even a bicycle that was piled so high it almost fell on the roof.

PC Mark Hodson of the CMPG B Unit said: “We have been asked to advise on a vehicle that poses an obvious hazard not only to the occupants but also to all other road users in the vicinity of the vehicle.

“Worse, it was driven by a driver who did not meet the standard of driving to get a full driver’s license.

“While shocking, it is a timely reminder to everyone that when carrying a load on a vehicle it is important to first ensure that your vehicle is suitable for carrying it and, second, that it is properly secured.”
