Diary - Video nasty

23rd October 2009 at 01:00

When it comes to dodgy videos on YouTube, you would think it would be the pupils you have to keep an eye on. Not in this case.

A British woman has ended up in court after driving through a puddle and splashing a group of schoolchildren at a bus stop. Not only that, but a video of the incident, including a blow-by-blow commentary by her partner, ended up on YouTube.

A male voice can be heard egging the driver on: "Here we go, ready to drench the kids," and then after the splash: "That was brilliant, awesome!"

Soon after the video was posted, complaints were made to police and the clip was pulled, but the driver may yet be prosecuted for careless and inconsiderate driving.
