Police had to stop possibly Britain's stupidest motorist after they only de-iced a tiny patch of windscreen of their white van to drive dangerously in the cold.

The owner of the white Ford Transit van was stopped at a Sainsbury's petrol station in Harlow, Essex last night after failing to properly de-ice their windscreen after freezing temperatures across the UK.

The driver, who has not been named, instead chose to clear a tiny circle of the windscreen above the steering wheel - so while they could see directly ahead they had almost no visibility to the left and right.

Officers were also shocked by the grim state of the van's interior, which was so overflowing with litter on the passenger seat that 'it could have fallen onto the driver or controls' - like the gear stick or in the footwell - potentially causing an accident.
