Road police in Kent stopped a motorbike they described as a "death trap" on Monday night (September 13).

Officers said the red-framed bike stopped in Cuxton had no rear lights including brake lights, as well as an insecure seat.

They said it was missing a footrest and the throttle cable was operated by pulling the loose cable.

On further investigation, police said the rider was found to have no insurance. They also tested positive for cannabis and cocaine on a drug wipe.

Announcing the incident on Twitter in the early hours of Tuesday, Kent Police ended with the hashtag "#fatal4" – a reference to the "four key activities that contribute to serious injury and death on UK roads" – named on the police website as speeding, drink and drug driving, not wearing a seat belt and using a mobile phone while driving.
