Is Mr Bean fit to drive?

Rowan Atkinson has smashed his Audi convertible car into a dustcart.

According to The Sun, the Mr Bean star emerged from the crash with bruising on his face and ribs, and has destroyed his motor.

A friend said: "It's a mangled wreck."

The driver of the cart did not receive any injuries.

Atkinson has had three additional car accidents in the last ten years - two in his Aston Martin V8 Zagato, worth £100,000, and one in his £650,000 McLaren F1.

Some years ago he lost his licence for speeding, which seems to have made no impact on his style of driving. Doubtless the police and CPS will decide that a regular celebrity offender smashing into a refuse truck is a trifle not worth pursuing.
