Three parts of a black suite had been precariously strapped to the boot and roof of the motor.

The car was stopped on a Saturday afternoon earlier this month and a 49-year-old man was reported for his excessive load and other driving offences.

Posting the picture on Twitter, Road Policing Scotland stated: "Officers from #GlasgowRP stopped this vehicle due to its load.

"Driver reported for load and other offences and suitable advice given for the transport of couches in the future. #TheMoreYouLookTheWorseItGets #WeNeedTheManWithAVan"
