Driver on phone at wheel of holiday coach

Here is footage of a coach driver using his mobile phone while driving passengers through Belgium.

Sean Davies of Colwyn Bay used a phone to check his route during a 10-day trip to Croatia in the summer of 2017 and has admitted to the traffic commissioner he was "silly".

He told the hearing in Welshpool it was after a confrontation with a passenger who refused to sit down. That passenger then filmed him using his phone.

"I don't deny what I've done is silly and it's regrettable," said Mr Davies.

The hearing was told there had been no criminal prosecution against Mr Davies because the incident happened outside the UK.
