More than 200 drivers were caught using their mobile phones while driving during a 12-day crackdown by police in unmarked cars in Cambridgeshire.

During March and April officers caught 210 motorists using a hand held mobile phone while driving.

"It's disappointing to catch so many motorists breaking the law," Sgt Robin Marshall said.

"It only takes a few seconds of distraction while on a mobile to cause a collision with fatal consequences."
