A coach driver who saw a car weaving around on the M1 used his coach to block the driver.
The driver, Reuben Clay, was behind the wheel of his National Express coach when he was overtaken by a car driving erratically and at speed.
Mr Clay had dropped his passenger off in Sheffield and was heading back to the National Express depot in Nottingham.
“Being a coach driver, you see so many crashes on the motorway that are fatal, you automatically think about trying to keep people safe,” said Mr Clay.
Mr Clay also stated that he drove alongside the erratic car until it came to a stop.
A spokesperson for Nottinghamshire Police stated: “We were called at 11.30pm on Sunday night to a report of a vehicle which had been driving erratically and swerving. We attended and a man has been arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs.”
The driver of the car, Trevor Bowbanks has now been charged with drink driving and is due to appear in court.
