A DRIVER on the M62 travelling at close to 70mph was caught watching YouTube in heavy rain.

Last night, officers from Merseyside Police's Roads Policing Unit were passing a vehicle on the busy stretch when they noticed the glare of a screen.

Imagine their shock when they saw the driver was watching YouTube on their dashboard.

Writing on the Twitter, they said: "Despite the appalling weather yesterday this driver on the M62 thought it was ok to drive along whilst watching YouTube.

"Vehicle stopped and driver reported for offence."

They later added: "Everyone is reported to the central ticket office where they will either be offered an educational course, fixed penalty ticket or court summons depending on the offence."
