Crash driver 'bored with lockdown' criticised by police

A motorist crashed into a metal fence while allegedly out for a drive because they were bored, creating more work for emergency services in the coronavirus lockdown.

The Ford Fiesta came off the road while on a non-essential journey in Chelmsford in Essex on Tuesday.

Essex Roads Policing Unit South wrote on Twitter: "Driver of this car was bored so went out for a drive!

"Us and the ambulance crew are both really busy and don't need extra work.

"Another person breaching the regulations.

"Please don't please stay home.

"Driver has been reported."
