Another video has emerged of a child driving an HGV lorry on a motorway in Northern Ireland.

The 36-second video, which was shared on social media, shows a young girl at the wheel driving along the M1 near Dungannon. A man and another child are sat next to her and none appear to be wearing seatbelts.

In the clip, the girl giggles while driving and the man smiles at the camera. The person filming, who is also inside the vehicle, films the road showing cars in the same lane in front of the lorry.

Seamus Leheny, of freight trade association Logistics UK, called on the police and the Department for Infrastructure – which issues licenses – to investigate the video.

‘We really need to send a message that these actions are unacceptable,’ he told the Belfast Telegraph.

Dungannon councillor Walter Cuddy called the actions of those in the clip ‘highly irresponsible’.

‘There are laws, and drivers are licensed to try to keep the roads as safe as possible. The parents or guardians should be ashamed of themselves,’ said the councillor.

It comes after a man, 37, was arrested in the Cookstown area of Co Tyrone after a video emerged of a little boy also appearing to drive a lorry along the M1 near Dungannon.

It showed the child in the driver’s seat of a lorry cab appearing to steer the vehicle along the motorway. A male can be heard talking in the background and sounds like he’s giving directions.

Police investigating the clip, which was shared on Snapchat, arrested the man on suspicion of aiding and abetting driving while disqualified due to age, and cruelty to children.

He has since been released on bail pending further enquiries.
