The M6 motorway is hardly the most picturesque location, but that didn’t stop three women from using it for a ‘selfie’ or two.
Local police were alerted to three ladies and their strange behaviour at around 11am on August 15th, having received numerous calls from motorists travelling on the carriageway.
“999’s call stating there are 3 females stopped and are posing for photos on the M6. I know the M6 is pretty but this could be dangerous!!” West Midlands Police tweeted.
Officers found the ladies strolling along active lanes while posing for photos. Two 25-year-olds and a 16-year-old were arrested on the M6 near Astonway Expressway and detained under the Immigration Act.
West Midlands Police followed up on its earlier tweet: “Please to report that @CMPG and @HAtraffic_wmids have located the wandering motorway trio and are taking them to a safer place to debrief!!”
It is unclear why the ladies had chosen such a location and if substances or drink were a factor. Maybe there’s something special about the M6 we are unaware of?
