“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.”

Anyone who witnessed the behaviour on the M4 should contact police on 101, or via the Wiltshire Police website, quoting reference 54240011186.
