Police trotting along a motorway found a bizarre haul when they stopped a 'swine' driving with no licence.
Cops were immediately suspicious when they saw what appeared to be a dead leg stuck up in the back window of a car on the M62.
And officers found a strange load when they pulled the Volkswagen over to investigate.
Police discovered the car was full of two whole dead pigs, The Liverpool Echo reported.
Officers might have thought it was a pig-ment of their imagination – but matters got worse for the driver.
Whilst carrying out checks, they found the motorists had no licence – and the window wipers were being pulled by a passenger using string.
Police said on Twitter that they had done a crackling job – but it is not known whether the little piggies were going to the market, or all the way home.
North West Motorway Police said: “Vehicle drove passed us on the M62

A spokesman was quick to thank "grammar police" for correcting his licence faux pas as internet jokers offered their best responses.
Predictably, Twitter users were suitably amused by the story.
One person joked: “Bet they were hogging the middle lane as well.”
Another chimed: “Oh well hog roast at the station lol”
And a third offered “This really takes the bacon." as a fourth joked that the motorists were "swine".
