The vehicle was stopped and 22-year-old Vincent was reported to court.

As well as being fined, Vincent was handed a 42-day driving disqualification.

PC Paul Davis, of the Wiltshire Police Roads Policing Unit, said: “This was incredibly reckless behaviour which could have caused a fatal collision on our roads.

“I hope Vincent spends his disqualification period re-evaluating his behaviour and the potential consequences of such poor driving.”
