A son went on a real-life 'Ferris Bueller's Day Off'-style outing after "borrowing" his father's Ferrari, but had it seized by police for not having insurance.

The 28-year-old man was pulled over by officers while driving the black Ferrari California while his family were on holiday.

He was caught in the supercar, worth at least £250,000 (€279,000), by police in Bromley, south east London, on Tuesday.

The car was pictured being loaded onto a recovery truck, before being taken to the police station where officers posed with it. However, the force said it will not be crushed.

Police in Bromley tweeted: "Don't take dad's Ferrari without the right insurance! No Insurance = No Car!"

A Metropolitan Police spokesman said: "Officers from the Bromley Safer Transport Team were patrolling in Bromley when they came across a black Ferrari.

"It transpired that the driver had 'borrowed' it from his dad whilst his parents were away on holiday.

"Insurance checks came back showing that he was not covered by his family's insurance policy on that car.

"As a result the driver has been reported for driving without insurance and police seized the car."
