A Hungarian lorry driver who pleaded guilty to driving the wrong way down the M6 for three miles is jailed for four months.
A lorry driver has been jailed for four months and disqualified for three years after driving the wrong way down the M6 for three miles.
Pal Korbely, 50, from Hungary, pleaded guilty to dangerous driving and driving a motor vehicle whilst under the influence of alcohol.
Three lorry drivers formed a blockade to stop Korbely near to junction 10 of the M6, at Walsall, late on 7 July.
Judge Paul Farrer QC said the drivers would each receive a £250 reward.
He said: "They are to be commended for their fast thinking and brave actions which may have saved lives."
Birmingham Crown Court heard Korbely had drank 51% proof home-made plum brandy before driving his lorry.
