Norfolk driver accused of using two phones

A driver has been accused of using two mobile phones at the same time following a crackdown in Norfolk.

Officers said the man was spotted on the A47 at Blofield, near Norwich, talking on one phone and using another to text.

A Norfolk Police spokesman said he now faced a court appearance for both offences.

About 240 people were also stopped for using mobile phones while driving during the two-week police operation.

Offenders face a £60 fixed penalty notice and having their licence endorsed with three penalty points, or undertaking a re-education programme.

The fine can also rise to £1,000 if the matter is taken through the courts while drivers of a bus, coach, or heavy goods vehicle can be fined £2,500.
