A motorist driving while using his mobile phone has been caught red-handed by police cameras made by the company he works for.

That is according to a message posted on the Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire Road Policing Unit’s official Twitter account.

A spokesman for the Herts Constabulary said: “A motorist was stopped on James Way in Stevenage at 2.10pm [last Thursday] in connection with a road traffic offence. It was suspected by officers that he was using his mobile phone while driving. He was issued with a Traffic Offence Report and the incident will be investigated.”

Within 20 minutes of the incident, a message was posted on the Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire Road Policing Unit’s official Twitter account which reads: “Another driver on phone #Stevenage. Works for company who make our car cameras, that camera captured offence & helps prove our case! #irony”

Herts Constabulary was unable to confirm if the Twitter statement is true.
