Eighteen tonnes of unsecured concrete blocks were found on the back of a lorry in Norfolk, days after a shocking video of blocks falling onto a Tesla.
Officers from the Norfolk and Suffolk Roads and Armed Policing Team (NSRAPT) found the lorry in Great Yarmouth on Tuesday morning.
It was carrying 18 concrete blocks weighing a tonne each, "with no measures to secure them on the trailer", according to an NRAPT tweet.
The driver was reported and the load was secured, NSRAPT said.
It comes after dashcam footage captured the moment a brand new £50,000 Tesla was wrecked by a pallet of concrete bricks which fell off the side of another lorry in Weston Longville.
Neil Collins and his wife miraculously escaped serious injury and suffered only minor cuts and bruises, but the month-old performance car was written off.
