Richard Hopkins said: “Why must it be crushed, can't it be sold instead? Such an enviromental and financial waste, particularly for such a fuel efficient car with a great reliability record."

"Mobile shed!” Richard Spoors said. “As they are under a 6-7 year driving ban, they must have been exceptionally naughty.”

Tom Barnett added: “Looks like it's already been through the crusher once.”
