Video: M5 driver caught by Police under-taking on hard shoulder

Video footage has emerged this week of an 'arrogant' driver who used the M5 hard shoulder near Burnham-On-Sea to undertake several vehicles.

The video, which was captured on a dashcam, shows the dangerous manoeuvre which occurred this week on the northbound carriageway approaching junction 23.

A few minutes after the red Nissan performed the illegal move, the motorist was spotted being stopped by police.

DA Holt, who filmed the incident and posted it on social media, said: "Karma finds an arrogant driver who thinks he is more important than the rest of us."

Many outraged people have commented online about the video. Charlotte Reno said: "Always one that thinks the rules don't apply to them." Luke Milliner wrote: "Finally police when you need them." And Phillip Cooke added: "Thumbs up to the coppers from the passenger in the van at the end."
