A motorist has been arrested after travelling unsupervised to his own driving test in a stolen car.

Then the man failed his test for the 10th time, police said.

West Midlands Police posted a picture of the white Mitsubishi vehicle the driver had turned up in in before officers attended the scene.

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

The Force Response unit posted on Twitter to describe the motorist as "stupid".

The post 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."
