Police caught 914 motorists using mobile phone while driving in just two weeks in Wales

More than 900 motorists were caught using their mobile phone while driving in just two weeks in Wales.

Officers from all four Welsh police forces took part in the campaign during October.

A total of 914 drivers were caught and issued with fixed penalty notices or Traffic Offence Reports (TORs).

Chf Insp Darren Wareing, of North Wales Police, said: "It is disappointing that so many drivers chose to ignore our warnings."

He added: "Even the most experienced or competent of drivers can be easily distracted and a slight lapse in concentration can have serious consequences."

In north Wales offenders are issued with TORs, which offers them a choice of an educational course, a fixed penalty and/or driving licence points or an appearance in magistrates' court.
