When they took a look at his phone, they were “gobsmacked” to discover that he was reading a WhatsApp message from someone about the penalties for using a handheld device while driving, SWNS reports.

"Just seen the driver of this vehicle texting whilst joining the M2 at J5, what was so important?,” they Tweeted.

Police added that they had educated him on the subject, apparently by hitting him with the current maximum six point penalty and £200 ($275) fine.
