Of those pulled over, 22 were found to be speaking on their phones while driving.

They received three penalty points and a fine of £100 each.

A further 28 drivers were fined £100 for driving without wearing sea belts.

Thames Valley Police tweeted that one female driver who was pulled over for speaking on her phone, denied the accusation, and said: “I couldn’t have been as I was putting on makeup and eating [a] croissant.”

Checks took place between 8am and 10am.
