Thames Valley Police Roads Policing officers were responding to calls from members of the public about ‘poor driving’ by the driver of a Mini on the M40.

The driver was stopped but gave false details to the officers who produced a fingerprint reader to discover their identity.

It turned out the driver was disqualified and was reported. “Driver stopped, provided false details, until we produced the finger print reader,” the team tweeted.
