The footage comes in timely fashion as strict new rules were enforced in the UK for drivers using phones behind the wheel.

Drivers caught will be given a fixed penalty notice, which under new legislation is a £200 fine, and six points on their licence.

Cases could go to court where drivers can be fined £1,000 and disqualified from driving or riding. Drivers of buses or goods vehicles could get a maximum fine of £2,500.

A total of 58 drivers were caught using their mobile phones at the wheel in Surrey in March alone, a Freedom of Information request revealed.
