Teacher had 19 kids in a Renault Clio

A nursery school teacher was pulled over by police in South Africa – with 19 children packed into her Renault Clio.

Melanie Minnie was taking the children, aged four to six, back to Rietfontein Nursery School in Pretoria after visiting a burger bar.

Six children were found in the car’s boot, three were on the front seat and the remaining 10 piled into the back.

It was unclear whether any of them were wearing seat-belts, reports The Mirror.

The toddlers were eventually removed from the car, all unharmed.

Ms Minnie told police she was in the process of ferrying a second car-load of youngsters back to the nursery.

Apparently, another 12 children had already been bundled into the Clio.

After she was fined just over £100, Ms Minnie said: "It was the first time we went on an outing, and the last. I’ll never do it again."
