Video footage of wrong-way A1 driver released

Police have released video footage of the moment they stopped a motorist who had driven for about 10 miles (16km) on the wrong side of a motorway.

The elderly man was seen on the A1 near Hinxworth in Hertfordshire last month, driving towards oncoming traffic in the outside lane of the southbound carriageway.

No-one was hurt and no vehicles were damaged but an application was made by police to have the driver's licence revoked on medical grounds.
