A lorry driver caught steering with his knees while he ate spaghetti from a pan was jailed for eight weeks after he admitted dangerous driving. Martin Veens was spotted driving his left-hand 40-tonne truck erratically on the A55 road near Northop, Flintshire. Prestatyn magistrates heard how the North Wales Police helicopter’s camera filmed him holding and eating from a saucepan as he steered with his knees. Veens, from the Netherlands, was banned from driving for a year.
