This is the remarkable video of a man in Britain driving with both hands behind his head.

Police have slammed the “sheer stupidity” of Richard Newton, who was travelling at speeds of up to 63mph (101km) when officers caught him.

The 36-year-old was given a 12-month driving ban and fine after being found guilty of dangerous driving at Scarborough Magistrates’ Court, in north-east England.

Dave Brown who heads North Yorkshire Police’s mobile safety camera team, said: “This case demonstrates two things, one is the sheer stupidity of some people who put others in danger, and the other is the ability of our safety camera to capture a range of offences.

“This is yet another case which shows that these cameras are about safety and not just speeding. We will take action against all manner of offences to ensure we keep our roads as safe as possible for everyone.”
