A driver has been arrested after travelling unsupervised to his own driving test.

West Midlands Police said the man had failed his test for the tenth time just moments before they arrested him.

Police posted a picture of the white Mitsubishi car he had shown up in before two officers arrested him at the scene.

He was arrested on suspicion of taking a vehicle without the owner's consent at the test centre in Birdbrook Road, Great Barr, at around 11am.

Officers from the Force Response unit took to Twitter to describe the motorist as "stupid".

In a tweet, they said: "Welcome to the world of stupid. Male turns up at the driving test centre for his driving test. Having driven himself there unsupervised.

"Then fails his test for the 10th time - male arrested by D unit Newtown for TWOC offence."
