A supercar driver has been mocked by police after he crashed his £150,000 motor into a wall.

The motorist left the 204mph McLaren 570S embedded in bricks as he stood next to the wreckage with his partner.

The 550bhp vehicle – which can do 0-62mph in 3.2 seconds – crashed near Staines, Surrey, late last night.

A photograph from the scene, near Thorpe Park, shows the bonnet bent around a pole sticking out from the wall with police standing nearby.

Social media users noticed how annoyed the man’s partner looked in the police tweet last night

Surrey Police’s Roads Policing Unit tweeted: ‘Somehow the driver of this McLaren couldn’t keep the car on the straight road in a 40 limit. Investigations continue.’

Social media users also mocked the driver and his partner under the force’s social media post at 11.46pm.

Joe Zampa, who lives near the crash site, commented: ‘His Mrs doesn’t look too happy either.’

John Schluter linked the post to the Dominic Cummings lockdown breach row that emerged last week.

The Prime Minister’s chief aide said he drove to Barnard Castle in County Durham to test his eyesight ahead of a trip back to London.

Mr Schluter said: ‘I’m guessing an eyesight problem. Should’ve Gone to Barney Castle.’

Claire Webb posted ‘Oops! He clearly ran out of talent,’ to which Surrey Police replied: ‘If he had any at all.’

And another joked: ‘I can’t help notice that that wall’s not wearing hiviz though. Or lights.’

The McLaren 570S was launched in 2015 and the model is assembled 10 miles down the road from the crash in Woking.
