THE UK's filthiest car that is so full of rubbish the owner can't take any passengers has been revealed.
Unrepentant Lindy Winship, 60, from Manningtree, has claimed the dubious honour of the nation's messiest vehicle.

Lindy joked that she and her husband always thought the motor could win the ‘untidiest car in Britain’, saying: "She is effectively known as the graveyard as she’s used as a general run around and a mobile tip!
"Whatever needs clearing up or has been carried somewhere to clean up or repair around the farm, it all gets thrown in her.
"My husband even has all the bad snacks and drinks in there too."

Helen Robinson of Euro Car Parts said: “Cleaning out your car can often fall to the bottom of your list of jobs.
"We’re sure that for many, these images may be a familiar sight.
“Giving your car a clean from time to time means you and your passengers will have a safer and more pleasant driving experience.
