Dorset Police have revealed unique excuses given to their road safety team for why drivers were speeding in the county.
A woman in the Purbecks denied to officers that she was using her mobile phone while driving.
She said that she was eating a prawn cracker and she didn’t have a phone with her.
The officer took her number and rang it. Unsurprisingly to the officer, the woman’s phone rang in the car.
The lady immediately apologised and offered the officer a prawn cracker. She was issued with a ticket.
