A bus driver has been given a nine-month professional driving ban for performing a three-point turn on a motorway and driving the wrong way up a slip road.
Mark Ingleton, 35, from Thursby near Carlisle, was told by the Deputy Traffic Commissioner that he'd let himself, his passengers and his employer down.
In July last year, Mr Ingleton was driving for Reays Coaches and was bringing members of the Whitehaven Rugby League team home after a game in London.
An accident on the M1 in Northamptonshire had led to delays, and after not moving for about 40 minutes, Mr Ingleton did a three-point turn on the motorway before driving the wrong way up the slip road, into oncoming traffic.
He said he'd come under pressure from passengers to make the manoeuvre, which other drivers had already carried out.
