A man spotted cycling on the M25 in Surrey was arrested when he was found to have overstayed his immigration visa.
Surrey Police stopped the 44-year-old from Ghana at 06:00 BST after receiving reports that a cyclist was riding along the hard shoulder of the motorway.
It was discovered during a road side check that his visitor visa was expired and he was arrested.
The man was stopped at junction 13 having joined the M25 at junction 11.
Surrey Police found a cyclist on the same stretch of motorway in February after an app on his phone had sent him on to the motorway by mistake.
