Man fined for driving fake ambulance through rush-hour traffic queue
Shaun Scandle, 31, forced way past cars at Tyne tunnel, in Renault Megane fitted with blue lights and a siren
A driver who made his car into a fake ambulance with blue lights and a siren and then forced his way through traffic waiting to use a busy tunnel has been fined more than £1,000.
CCTV showed the white vehicle, with its lights flashing, moving through cars queuing at the Tyne tunnel, and drivers getting out of the way of what they must have thought was a response to a 999 call.
