An e-scooter rider was caught over the limit on a motorway hard shoulder by police

Police have released a video of an e-scooter caught riding at 3am on a motorway hard shoulder - while over the drink-drive limit.

The footage was post on X, formerly Twitter, by Avon and Somerset police, who said it was a privately owned scooter and that the rider was 'twice the drink-drive limit'. They also added that it was 'rubbish weather' and that: 'You couldn't write it!'

The rider was arrested and charged with drink-driving, having no insurance, and being a learner driver on a motorway.
