“The hot sun burned my L plates off, Garda...”

The heatwave is having an effect on all of us but if you think you can get much past An Garda Síochána, you better think again.

When a learner driver was stopped in a bus lane in Dublin, the guards were told that the current spell of hot weather was to blame for L plates not being displayed on the vehicle.

It seems the Gardaí got a chuckle out of the situation and whenever that happens, the story usually ends up on their Twitter account. Today is no different...

The motorist in question is probably in hot water now but let's hope they've learned their lesson.
