A MOTORIST has been given a ticket after being caught hogging the middle lane on the M4 in Reading.

The Road Policing Unit of Thames Valley Police released footage of a BMW driver travelling on the carriageway on New Year's Eve.

People caught in the middle lane for longer than necessary can be fined up to £100, following changes to the law in 2013.

The officers followed the driver for a mile before pulling them over between junctions 12 and 13 shortly after 9am.

They were issued with a ticket for carless driving.
