A coach driver from Cumbria who drove the wrong way down a motorway slip road, has been disqualified from professional driving for nine months.
35-year-old Mark Ingleton from Thursby, who worked for Reay's Coaches, made the manoeuvre on the M1 in July last year whilst carrying members of Whitehaven Rugby League team.
The Deputy Traffic Commissioner, Simon Evans, revoked Mr Ingleton's license in a written decision after a conduct hearing.
Mr Ingleton told the Deputy Commissioner he had come under pressure from passengers to carry out the manoeuvre.
However, Mr Evans said that it was a 'spectacular failure' by Mr Ingleton not to deal with the pressure situation.
