Somerset’s ‘Jenga champion’ stopped at M5 service station

Police stopped ‘Somerset’s Jenga champion’ at a service station earlier this week. Officers likened the block-stacking game to a load in a truck stopped at a service station off the M5. Avon and Somerset Police‘s Roads Policing said the vehicle carrying the load in an incorrect, unsafe manner was stopped on Monday (May 24) at Sedgemoor Service on Twitter.

The vehicle had its load re-distributed and re-strapped, the tweet continued. The force reminded drivers two load-rated straps need to be used, preferably three. It said: “2021 Somerset Jenga champion stopped #SedgemoorServices yesterday.

“Load re-distributed and re-strapped. Driver suitably advised that it very much was NOT fine to load like this! “Always use 2 suitably load-rated straps, preferably 3 for redundancy…”
