A car has been towed away by police after the driver pretended to be his brother and four children were found on the back seats not wearing their seat belts - along with their cat.
While one lane was shut on the A5 at Watford Gap yesterday following a two-car crash, Northamptonshire Police Safer Roads team were on scene monitoring traffic flow in the area.
Officers soon noticed a blue Daewood Lacetti with more activity going on inside the car than usual - including the addition of the families pet cat.
Four children were spotted sitting in the back seats - without child seats - and none of them were wearing any seat belts.
After being questioned by police the driver tried to pass his identity off as his brothers.
After taking a fingerprint test police quickly discovered he was lying about who he was and that he didn't have a driving licence or insurance.
He has now been reported for his offences.
