A lorry driver spotted weaving between lanes on the motorway was caught “enjoying a yoghurt” while behind the wheel.

Police officers stopped the driver on the M1 on Wednesday, November 25 after they suspected he was using a mobile phone while driving.

Officers from the Bedfordshire, Hertfordshire and Cambridgeshire Roads Policing Unit pulled up alongside the HGV and made a shocking discovery.

A spokesperson said: “We spotted this HGV on the M1 weaving between the lane markings.

“When we drew up alongside, expecting to see mobile phone use, the driver was enjoying a yogurt at the wheel using his forearms to steer.
