And finally… grounded

A speeding motorist was relieved of his brand-new Lamborghini just hours after he purchased it under new Danish legislation.

The owner, an unnamed Iraqi man, was driving his new £228,000 car home from Germany to Norway when he was stopped by police in Denmark.

He was allegedly driving at 236 kilometres per hour (or 147 miles per hour), well above the speed limit of 130 kmh (81 mph), Nordjyske reports.

The car was immediately seized under a recent Danish law which allows police to seize vehicles from reckless drivers and auction them off for public funds.

“It was a little sad for him,” the police officer who seized the car said.
