The tweet by West Yorkshire Police’s Road Policing Unit

Officers from the Road Policing Unit tweeted a picture of a man and woman carrying their belongings away in Horbury Road, Wakefield, after seizing the car for being uninsured, with the hashtag ‘#luggagewalkofshame’.

The vehicle was confiscated by police yesterday.

The tweet posted was met with replies from the public asking why officers were not helping the homeless couple.

Adam W (@AdmW_) said: “I do hope you can put them in touch with organisations that can help them in their challenging situation? Disappointed by tweet.”

Ste Armstrong (@4brothersefc) said: “So now you’ve made them homeless? How funny! You should be ashamed of yourselves.”

Another reply branded the tweet ‘disgraceful’.

The tweet was removed from the Road Policing Unit Account (@WYP_RPU) three hours after it was posted.

However a second tweet about a driver living out of his car, tweeted shortly after the first, is still visible, with the hashtag ‘#carinsurancenothomeinsurance’.
