If you’ve been spotted by police and stopped for using a mobile phone, most of us hold our hands up.
But not always.
Cambridgeshire Police were 100 per cent confident they had seen a man using his mobile phone whilst behind the wheel.
And they pulled him over to give him a ticket.
"We’ve just seen you using a mobile phone whilst driving,” was their opening line, expecting the driver to admit the offence.
But his answer surprised them.
“No, you didn’t,” he replied.

“I don’t even have a phone on me.”
A search of the car may well have followed save for one embarrassing (well for the driver) moment.
His phone rang.
As a police spokesperson noted: “You couldn't make it up sometimes.”
The hapless offender has now been duly reported.
“He will either get six points and a fine or a day in court,” said the spokesperson
Police also pointed him – and others- to their website.
To the section, they said, which has “more information on the dangers of using a mobile phone whilst driving”.
