16,000 motorists were caught using mobile phones at the wheel.

HAMPSHIRE police have caught more than 5,000 drivers using their mobile phones behind the wheel.

The figures were released on Tuesday as officers launch a new week-long region-wide campaign to crack down on those putting lives at risk by taking a call on the road.

This week’s scheme is run in partnership with the Thames Valley and the Isle of Wight forces as part of a joint operation.

In total 15,952 drivers were caught using handheld phones and other electronic devices across the three counties between March 31 and April 1 last year. The Hampshire figure was 5,280.
