This is the shocking moment a motorist was filmed using his laptop while driving on a motorway.

The device was placed on the passenger seat of his van as he travelled at 50mph on the M25 near Staines, Surrey. During the video he can be seen using one hand to steer as he looks across at the screen.

According to reports in The Sun, the person who recorded the video also saw the driver using their phone.

They said: "This man was one of many drivers we had clocked earlier using their phone.

"That was ridiculous enough, but about 10 minutes later we spotted him again and he's bashing away at his keyboard."

Gary Rae, from road safety charity Brake, told The Sun: "This is shocking and unacceptable behaviour from someone who's more interested in his laptop screen than looking at the windscreen."

Thames Valley Police is looking into the incident.
