This is the shocking moment a lorry driver is caught four times the drink-drink limit as he weaves across the motorway so badly one driver rings the police.

Ihar Shynkevich's 44-tonne HGV could be seen veering from lane to lane and narrowly missing a car joining the motorway from a slip road.

Police were called when a member of the public became so concerned with his lane swapping on the M5 in Somerset that he phoned in his registration plate.

Shynkevich has been sent to prison after he was warned his recklessness could have killed someone.

The 35-year-old was disqualified from driving for 1,163 days and was sentenced to 19 weeks on Tuesday for driving a motor vehicle while over the prescribed alcohol limit.
