A motorist in Cork's day went from bad to worse when Gardaí stopped him after they spotted him chatting on his mobile phone, but then found evidence of a number of other offences also.

Fermoy Roads Policing Unit stopped the driver in Rathcormac and inspected the vehicle which had a trailer attached.

They found that the driver had failed to attach a breakaway cable, or secondary coupling, to the trailer which was loaded with two bulls.

It then transpired that the motorist didn’t hold a trailer license either.

He was issued with three penalty points and a €60 fixed charge notice for holding a mobile phone, while he will now also appear in court for having no license and no secondary coupling.
