This is the terrifying moment a motorist was forced to swerve to avoid a pensioner driving the wrong way down one of Britain's busiest motorways while more than twice the alcohol limit.

Bolton OAP David Haughton got behind the wheel of his Volvo and headed along the M6 near Lancaster, Lancs, during rush hour on St George's Day this year.

Police say the 75-year-old was initially going in the right direction before turning around and driving towards oncoming traffic between junctions 33 and 32 just before 4pm.

The incident prompted dozens of frantic 999 calls.
