CCTV footage of lorry driving wrong way on M6

This is the CCTV footage showing the moment a lorry driver drove the wrong way down the M6 motorway for ten miles.

50-year-old Pal Korbely from Hungary admitted dangerous driving and driving with excess alcohol.

He had parked his lorry at Hilton services on the M6 on Saturday 7th July for a rest period.

That afternoon he watched the Grand Prix with two other drivers using a satelite dish on top of his cab, he was drinking home-made plum brandy at 51% proof and beer.

At 10.30pm for no apparent reason, he drove his vehicle southbound on the northbound carriageway of the M6 with no lights on.

Amazingly there were no collisions and he was eventually stopped by three HGV drivers who blockaded the carriageway.
