A Mr Whippy was pulled over by police for driving without an MOT.

Sussex Police tweeted about the incident in Crawley.

The force tweeted: "Stop me & buy one! We asked him for an MOT certificate, not a Mini Milk & a Fab. Had plenty of ice cream but no MOT."

A Sussex Police spokeswoman said: "At 9.40am on Wednesday in Ifield Drive, Crawley, a 25-year-old man was reported for using a vehicle without a test certificate - MOT expired in February.

"The driver, a 25-year-old mam from Crawley, could face a £100 fine."

the police should look out in the worthing area for a couple of asians operating an ice cream van, It has one seat and seat belt so the other one sits on a wooden box, very safe, very legal

I'd be more concerned about his hygiene certificate to be honest.

Hardly a newsworthy story, just an excuse for a poor pun.

The Crawley cowboys again, you would also be surprised at how many stolen ice cream vans are operating around the country.
