A DRIVER was caught speeding and straddling two lanes while trying to record and watch videos on the TikTok app.

North West Motorway Police officers spotted the motorist and his erratic driving as he travelled down Speke Boulevard near Widnes last night.

After pulling over the blue Ford Mondeo on the nearby Knowsley Expressway (A5300) the officers discovered the driver had been using the popular TikTok video app while at the wheel.

The social networking app allows users to record, share and watch short lip-sync, comedy, and talent videos.

Officers described his driving as "horrendous behaviour" and added that he has been reported for a court summons.
