Royal Mail lorry seen dangerously and illegally using two lanes on the motorway

This was the shocking moment a Royal Mail lorry was spotted hogging two lanes of the motorway near Weston-super-Mare, Somerset yesterday (May 8).

The brazen motoring displayed by the Royal Mail official was caught on dashcam on the M5 going southbound, as it blocked traffic from overtaking.

It eventually overtakes a vehicle then weaves across into the left-hand slow lane.

The filmer, who was on their way to the hospital in nearby Taunton, told Newsflare: "We were very shocked to - firstly - see a lorry in lane three on a motorway.

"But also because restrictions implemented by the highway on that 50mph zone showed lorries should only be in first lane.

"[I haven't] seen anything like this where a lorry straddles two lanes for such a long distance."
