Footage of the incident was posted on Facebook and had been viewed more than 138,000 times.

A spokesman for Hampshire Constabulary has today revealed the force has identified the man and ‘dealt with him’ for driving without due care and attention.

The official added the man has been reported for the offence and will be dealt with by the courts.

Terry Williams, who recorded the footage of the incident, has since welcomed the actions by police.

The 56-year-old, who was picking his nine-year-old grandson up from school at the time, said: ‘It does send a strong message and I welcome it.’

At the time, he was astonished by the drivers’ action, which he claimed were ‘crazy and could have killed someone’.
