www.mirror.co.uk – A seven-year-old boy was pulled over by police after driving 20 miles in a bid to visit his dad.

The lad got up to 50mph in his stepdad’s red Pontiac Sunfire as he tried to make the 12 mile journey to his father’s home.

Two people who spotted him alerted police. They pciked up and followed the car, forcing the boy to a stop by boxing him in with other cars.

Witness Aaron Scott said: “I looked over to my left and saw a kid about 4ft tall, looked like he was about eight years old, driving by himself.

“He looked like he was standing up on the floormat barely touching the seat and hunched over the steering wheel.”
