Out of Control

Motorway Cops, Series 5 Episode 5 of 7

The Motorway Cops are called to the scene of a head-on collision on the motorway near Birmingham city centre. A woman has died and officers have to clear the road and try to discover the cause of the accident.

Keeping the roads safe is a major concern for the Motorway Cops, but sometimes the excuses they hear for poor driving allow them to use their discretion. PCs Martin Smith and Nigel Kearney have to decide whether to 'throw the book' at a trucker who they've caught using his mobile phone while at the wheel of his 44-ton lorry.

In Yorkshire, as PCs Jim Duffy and Mick Roffe are forced to chase a man who has run away from them after being handcuffed, PC Matt Fleming faces a difficult choice when the man they have arrested begs the police to let him say goodbye to his girlfriend and their baby daughter before he is returned to jail.
