A man's license has been taken off him after driving the wrong way on the M6 this morning (8 February).
Our colleagues from the Central Motorway Police Group (CMPG) were made aware at 4.40am. A car was seen travelling the wrong way on the northbound carriageway near junction 14 in Stafford.
A short time later, officers managed to bring the car to a stop.
The driver of the car, a man in his 80s, was checked over at the scene and spoken to by officers about what happened. He went to hospital as a precaution.
Whilst there was no intent to endanger other road users and drive on the wrong side of the road, the man’s license was revoked.
We’d like to thank those who were caught up in the traffic disruption this morning for their patience and understanding. The car has been recovered and the road is back open.
