A man who drove the wrong way for nine miles down the M25 has been sentenced to 14 months in a young offenders’ institute.
20-year-old Michael Lock from Kenley, South London was caught on CCTV cameras speeding down the wrong way in his BMW between junctions four and two of the M25 through Kent and onto the A2 road. Highways Agency CCTV operatives spotted him driving down the hard shoulder anti-clockwise on the clockwise carriageway close to junction four at sevenoakes.
People were calling 999 to inform that drivers were having to move out of the way of the ongoing car. His ten-minute-long rampage finally came to an end when he smashed into two cars lawfully driving down a sliproad as he tried to get onto the A2 at Bean.
