A driver was stopped by police for travelling with their windscreen covered in snow after only scraping a small portion of it away on the driver's side.

On Twitter, Thames Valley Police shared a photo of the car with snow and ice covering its windscreen as a warning to other motorists.

They added that they had given a driver a ticket for driving without due care and attention on Sunday, November 28.

"Driving becomes more challenging in the snow,” they wrote.

"It is made worse when you can't see where you are going."

"Please don't make the same mistake as this driver who has just been issued with a ticket for driving a vehicle in this condition."

One Twitter user joked underneath: "Perhaps he couldn't find his scraper and had to use an old discount card instead, so he only got 20% off!"

The rest were critical about the potential dangers of driving with a partial view.

The Citroen C4 was seen by police leaving Dawson Street, Oxford, and drove for a short distance before it was stopped in St Clement's Street around 22:45.

According to the Highway Code, windscreens and windows must be kept clean and free from obstructions to vision including snow.

Many areas of the UK have seen heavy snowfall over the last few days caused by Storm Arwen.

Met Office have warned Britain is set for at least four more days of snow as temperatures continue to drop.

Forecasters have said snow is likely to fall over hills on Friday, becoming heavy in places such as the Cairngorms in Scotland.

At least three people have died in accidents caused by Storm Arwen after strong winds hit the nation over the weekend.

The Met Office ’s Stephen Dixon said: “Winds will be especially high in exposed coastal areas in the north and north east, with gusts in excess of 40mph expected.

“The cool conditions will see some snow fall in the high ground of the far north, and generally as sleet or rain in low ground.

“That theme continues into Thursday, with a band of rain moving in from the west later in the day.”
