A cyclist has been branded a "dummy" by police after being spotted riding along the hard shoulder on the M1 near Redbourn in the pouring rain and wind.
The man, who remains anonymous, was escorted off the motorway heading south towards London and appeared to have no lights on his bike on Sunday.
Officers took to twitter to post a picture with the hashtag "don't be a dummy".
A police spokesman said the cyclist was advised it was against the law but no further action would be taken. The cyclist said he would catch the train to London instead.
