THREE motorists were caught using their mobile phone at the wheel in Bromsgrove and Hopwood yesterday.

On the A38 in Bromsgrove a lorry driver was seen using his handheld phone.

All three were stopped by officers from Worcestershire Operational Policing Unit (OPU).

The crime, which can greatly impair drivers’ concentration levels, incurs a £200 fine and six penalty points.
