Video has emerged of a child driving a car packed with other children - and a goat.

The footage, filmed in Whitianga by Auckland's Gaz Walden, shows several children in a red Ford Falcon with a boy, about 8 years old, at the wheel.

Walden then realises there is a goat in the back seat.

"You're f***ing kidding me. What the f*** is going on. This is insane. Look at him, he can only just see over the steering wheel," he says.

He pulls up next to the car and tells the boy he shouldn't be driving - but then a middle-aged man climbs out of the back seat to reassure him, saying the boy is "actually training".

"I don't care mate - that is ridiculous," Walden tells him.

Police are aware of the video, a spokesperson said.

"Police will be making inquiries.

"Until these inquiries have been conducted, police are unable to offer any further comment," the spokesperson said.
