A motorist has been caught on camera eating a bowl of cereal while overtaking cyclists at 35mph in a busy city centre.

YouTube user Raging Bike uploaded the video online, saying: "I guess if you are hungry then why not eat a bowl of cereal as you drive. How did he do this?

"He must have planned to exit his house, climb into the car (no hands?) with a bowl of cereal and milk... who does that???"

The driver who was filmed in Edinburgh, is seen holding the bowl with one hand while steering his car past the cyclist with the other. The cyclist catches up with him at a set of traffic lights and zooms in to clearly show the cereal.

An AA spokesman said: "It's pretty stupid, it's unbelieveable really.

"For some people their car in a way becomes their home, and they behave in such a way that they would in their house."

Police in Scotland confirmed that an inquiry has been launched into the incident.
