A 13-year-old boy was stopped by police after he was spotted driving a tractor with a baler on a public road.

The young boy and his father have both been reported to police.

Officers recently stopped the vehicle on a Co Fermanagh road.

 “The boy, who was in convoy with his father at the time, obviously did not hold a valid driving licence or insurance,” a PSNI officer told Belfast Live.

“From the age of 13 you are allowed to operate agricultural vehicles on the farm, but not on the road.

“Both father and son will be reported to the Public Prosecution Service for a range of motoring offences.”
