MOTORISTS were stunned to see a cyclist pedalling on the M1 motorway this morning.

The man, believed to be in his twenties, had cycled southbound on the hard shoulder from junctions 10 to nine (Redbourn) before being stopped by police at about 8am.

One witness, Anthony Matthews, told the Review: "I witnessed something this morning I thought I would never see - a cyclist on the M1."

The cyclist was guided off the motorway at junction nine and let off without a caution.

Hertfordshire Police spokesman Simon Feldman said: "We have spoken to him and given him some friendly words of advice."
