A DRIVER was given a penalty notice by police for driving with his wife in the boot of his car.

North West Motorway Police say he was pulled over yesterday.

They had travelled from Coventry to Salford to collect a £15 Ebay purchase of windows.

His wife could not fit in the vehicle so she was travelling in the boot for the return journey when stopped on the M6 in Cheshire.

The driver was given a ticket for the offence, according to police.
