The video, uploaded by a man called Luke Page, starts with him saying the woman is operating two pieces of technology while at the wheel.

The clip has been viewed thousands of times already.

He also accuses her of drinking a cup of tea while driving on the road, believed to the A127 in Essex.

The man catches up with her at the next red light and confronts her - a tablet is visible on the dashboard of her car.

He tells the woman: “It looks like you’re watching TV - you know that’s illegal, don’t you?”

The woman doesn't respond, rolling up her window and driving off instead. As she drives away, Mr Page tells her: “Well done. You’re going on Facebook."

Essex Police has confirmed it's investigating a video posted online which appears to show a woman watching tv while driving on the A127.

Roads officers are now deciding whether any action will be taken.
