A driver has been rumbled by police with six people in the back of their van – one of whom was sat on a wooden chair.

Hackney officers were conducting checks on illegal drivers this afternoon when they stopped a white transit.

But they were in for a shock when the back doors were opened.

In a picture posted to the Hackney police Twitter account, what appears to be four adults and two children were sat in the back.

One child can be seen sat on the floor, while an adult is seen sitting on a wooden chair.

It is not known whether the van had been driven anywhere or stopped before it could be, but officers said the driver was “putting lives at risk.”

Hackney police have been contacted for comment.
