A motorist was stopped today for holding a mobile phone and filming the scene of a collision, Gardaí have said.

The incident occurred in Dublin 8 and Gardaí stated in a social media post that the culprit will face prosecution.

It comes after calls from the family of Tallaght woman Jacqueline Griffin, who lost her life on the M50 a fortnight ago, for people to stop sharing images of similar incidents on apps such as Whatsapp. In a statement, the Griffin family said 'When or if you receive these images I urge you to stop and think. Do not share. Delete and report.'
