The world's first mobile car-based driving simulator has been launched by a Braintree company.

The Benson School of Motoring simulator, which can also mirror the effects of drink driving, has been used by Cambridge Police to discourage clubbers from driving home after a night out.

The simulator has also been used in Sweden by the national tourism board.

Instructor Steve Hicks said: “The simulator is used in all sorts of scenarios."
