Watch: Police on horseback catch a man using his phone while driving

This the moment a man using his phone while driving was caught - by two police on horse back.

Police video shows officers on horses on patrol when they spot the man speaking on his mobile.

One officer says: "He was on his phone - there he goes he's on his phone. That silver car."

They then gallop after the silver Land Rover Freelander in Taunton, Somerset - and pull him over.

One officer tells him: "You know you shouldn't be using your phone."

The man replies: "No, no music. I have a problem."

But the police officer points out there is a conversation going on and he was fined.

In a tweet posted yesterday (March 14), Avon and Somerset Police said: "Officers from @ASPoliceHorses have been supporting #OpTelecom, our operation to clamp down on the risk posed by drivers who use their phone at the wheel.”
