Where were you watching Liverpool’s epic win over Barcelona last night? Down the pub? The relative comfort of your sofa? Wherever it was, it was doubtless a more sensible option than the choice made by one viewer.
An Garda Síochána have tweeted an image which shows that they caught a Dublin motorist driving while watching the drama unfold on their phone. The DMR North Roads Policing Unit detected the culprit who will now be hit with a fine for the offence.

While last night’s game will live long in the memory for sporting reasons, this person will always associate it with a fairly foolish error of judgement.
A lesson for any sports fans who find themselves on the road during a big match in the future.
