A man has been arrested after ‘filming himself driving at 160mph’ on the M4.
Police were made aware of a video posted on social media showing a male driving a black Nissan GTR on the motorway between junctions 16 and 18 on Sunday (28 January).
Officers identified the driver, a Swindon man aged in his 30s, and arrested him on suspicion of dangerous driving last night (Tuesday, 30 January).
His Nissan GTR was also seized for examination as part of the investigation.
Sgt Ben Cox said: “This is completely unacceptable.
“Driving at speeds like this can so easily end in disaster as you have no time to respond to anything.
“We will not tolerate dangerous driving like this on our roads and we will ensure that those who do are found and brought before the courts.
“If you witnessed this behaviour on the M4 then please get in touch with us on 101 or via our website quoting reference 54240011186.”
