Officers caught a motorist in Barlborough driving 'without a care in the world' after crashing into a gate.

One social media user couldn’t believe the driver carried on with their journey after crashing into the gate, writing: “It looks like someone has attacked the bonnet with a can opener.”

While another person also remarked on the damage to the Peugeot and commented underneath the post from Derbyshire Roads Policing Unit: “Ah yea, no one will notice that, that'll definitely scuff out won't it?!”.

The car has been recovered.
