80 drivers 'took picture of crash'

80 drivers used their phones to photograph emergency services attempting the rescue of a 21-year-old driver trapped in her crashed truck on the M1 last month, the AA have said.

The seriously injured driver was eventually flown by air ambulance to hospital and survived the crash.

The police have contacted most of these drivers to warn them about their illegal and irresponsible behaviour but have not prosecuted the drivers.
