Gardaí have publicly shamed what could possibly be the worst case of insurance fraud we have ever seen.

This driver was stopped by gardaí in Wexford and is now facing a day in court after they spotted this awful forgery.

A picture, posted on Twitter, shows that the driver changed the date June 2016 to June 2018 with a black marker.

But when the blue Renault megane was intercepted by gardaí it didn't take an eagle-eyed detective to spot this terrible forgery effort.

Gardaí wrote on Twitter: "International forger of the year....NOT!' Car intercepted by Wexford Gardaí with no Tax/NCT& altered Ins Disc."

They went on to confirm that a prosecution will follow.

Earlier the Garda Press Office sent out another hilarious tweet about a "little visitor" in the form of a bird who appeared in their office.

"Little visitor to the Garda Press Office this am delivering a 'Tweet' ! He's not a Jailbird ..just passing through," they wrote.
