What the driver probably didn't realise was that the maneuver, done at approximately 10pm on Thursday September 21, was done directly in front of a marked police car, which subsequently resulted in the driver being reported for offences.

Lancashire Road Police took to social media to post the incident, saying: "An absolutely awful bit of driving on the M6 SB and directly in front of a marked car. Reported for offences."

Other Twitter uses echoed the police's viewpoint.

One user said: "What an absolute clown. Surely this sort of stuff should merit a mandatory retest? Just too dangerous to do that on a motorway."

Another user said: "If there were enough hours in the day I could send you a few similar motorway driving antics daily weekly... I'm not surprised anymore."
