Motorist caught using two mobiles at Blofield

A MOTORIST was stopped by police for using not just one, but two mobile phones on one of Norfolk’s busiest roads, it has emerged.

Shocked road policing officers spotted the male driver holding one phone to his ear talking while using another to text while on the A47 at Blofield.

The driver was stopped by police and had his vehicle seized for no insurance, and is likely to face a court appearance as a result of both offences.

The incident, which happened at about 10.40am on May 17, is one of hundreds of offences to be picked up during a two-week crackdown on motorists using mobile phones behind the wheel.

In all, 239 people were stopped by police during the campaign and warned by officers that driving while using a mobile phone will not be tolerated.
