South Yorkshire Police said: “The vehicle was spotted being driven with a tyre missing and failed to stop through Doncaster.

“Vehicles don't handle quite so well when all four corners don't have any rubber and it eventually ran out of luck on a roundabout.”

Two arrests were made, with the driver held on suspicion of being over the drink drive limit.
