Police in Magherafelt arrested a woman driving a car with no tyres after a tip-off from a member of the public on Saturday night.

The 29-year-old woman was seen driving the car between Portglenone and Bellaghy on its rims with visible damage.

Police responded to the incident after a member of the public contacted them with a description of the driver, the location and the registration of the car.

A PSNI spokesperson wrote on the 'PSNI Magherafelt' Facebook page that police responded immediately.

The car was discovered by police after a crash and the driver was arrested for driving whilst unfit through drink and/or drugs.

"Another potential killer off the roads," the spokesperson said.

The woman has since been released on bail, pending further enquiries.
