South Yorkshire Police said a BMW was being driven on an unlit part of the M18 near Doncaster last night.

Officers pulled over the car and found three people as well as the driver inside.

A spokesman for South Yorkshire Police Ops Support said the road surface was wet and the temperature was below freezing.

"The driver was reported for excess speed," he said.

"He has blatantly put the lives of everyone on that stretch of motorway in danger.

"A blow out at those speeds would be fatal."
