In a rather strange story a 13-year-old boy was halted by police in North after he was seen driving a tractor with a baler on a public road recently.
It is understood that young boy from Co Fermanagh was spotted driving the vehicle with his father sitting beside him and was subsequently stopped by officers from the PSNI.
A police spokesman told Belfast Live: “The boy, who was in convoy with his father at the time, obviously did not hold a valid driving licence or insurance”. “From the age of 13 you are allowed to operate agricultural vehicles on the farm, but not on the road.”
The spokesman added: “Both father and son will be reported to the Public Prosecution Service for a range of motoring offences.”
