Man arrested over second lorry-driving child video

A 49-YEAR-OLD man has been arrested by police investigating a second video of a child driving a lorry on a motorway near Dungannon that has been shared online.

The latest footage, which appears to show a young girl behind the wheel, emerged soon after another video appearing to show a boy driving a lorry on the M1 was widely circulated on social media.

The 49-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of a number of offences, including aiding and abetting driving whilst disqualified by reason of age and cruelty to children.
