The journalist for BBC Look East can be heard saying in disbelief: ‘He’s watching his phone while driving.
‘Oh my god… I can’t believe it.’
She posted the video on Twitter with the words: ‘Just seen a guy casually watching Eastenders while driving through London…’
Twitter users were equally shocked at the man’s behaviour, with one person writing: ‘This guy just doesn’t have any common sense!’
‘Am sure the Met Police and MPS Roads & Transport Policing Command would be interested in this footage,’ another said.
