A reckless lorry driver has been caught driving along a motorway – while watching a FILM.

The HGV worker was spotted by another motorist swerving between lanes on the M20 at Ashford, Kent, in the early hours of yesterday morning .

The driver reported the incident to police who then caught up with the lorry.

Shockingly, the worker was still watching the film.

Police pulled him over – giving him an on the spot fine of £500 for driving whilst not in proper control.

A Kent Police spokesman said: “We received a call at 1.50am in relation to bad driving.

“The person who called claimed it looked as if the driver of an HGV was watching a DVD/TV screen whilst driving.

“This was seen between junctions 9 and 8 of the M20. It was reported to us that the vehicle was swaying onto the other carriageway.

“Police located the vehicle, and also observed the driver watching a film, so the lorry was escorted to the A228 Malling Road layby.

“The vehicle was immobilised as the driver was unable to settle the #500 penalty at the time.”
