Hahaha, this is some nut to be able to hold onto the wheel on the A1!

Driven by a dipshit.

There is however a genuine phenomenon around wheelnuts coming loose on HGVs
This is despite regular checks ( hence those horrid little green triangles infesting wheels across the nation)and predominantly affecting the rear nearside.
I once worked for a haulier who did have wheels go missing periodically,and thought at the time the fitter was just a lazy 's-ole.
Some years later there was a TV documentary about it.
It is on my to do list.
But not right at the top

Have a look at this. Do you think the driver is maybe on his phone?

Wasn't this one of the Car Throttle people in the golf?

Maybe the driver was going to attempt a similar manoeuvre to the Romanian gang in this clip, but (in a daring variation) do it from the front rather than the back.....?

Same situation as that one: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IYSmTlTb9pU
It seems the common theme is the golf, just a different colour.
