Police found the rider part way into his 35 mile journey on Friday night.

A spokesman for South Yorkshire Police said: “We had a chap who wanted to cycle from Doncaster to Mansfield, but decided that the M18 was the quickest way - and he had no lights.

"With the assistance of Highways England he was taken to a place of safety and given some stern words of advice.”
