A TEENAGE driver will lose his licence after just six days on the road after being caught texting with both hands while driving.

The male was spotted with both hands on his phone while driving along Castle Lane West in Bournemouth on Monday.

Officers from the Dorset Police No Excuse team issued him with six penalty points and a £200. As a new driver his driving licence will be revoked and he will have to take his test again.

A No Excuse spokesman said: "While in the area of Castle Lane West responding to speed complaints we witnessed the driver using his phone whilst driving.

"The driver was holding his phone with both hands texting away whilst travelling along Castle Lane West at 30mph.

"When stopped, the 19 year old male, who had only been driving 6 days admitted using his phone. He was aware of the consequences of receiving six points in his first two years, and realised he had made a big mistake."
