Turns out home-made convertible cars aren't such a good idea after all...


There are lots of DIY opportunities to try out during the heatwave. You could make your own ice lollies. You could construct a paddling pool out of a recycling bin.

But whatever you do, don't try to convert your Ford KA into a cabriolet because the police won't approve.

The South Yorkshire Police tweeted some photos of the blue car from Swinton after its DIY hack-job.

The roof, side windows and framework all appear to have been lifted off to leave behind a rather dashing convertible, enough to rival those from the Rich Kids of Instagram.

The police however, did not approve, and sent the car to be crushed...

You live and learn.
