Vlog star Zoella is facing criticism after filming herself while driving.
During the video, entitled ‘Pug Party’, she repeatedly looks at the video camera and at one point takes both her hands off the steering wheel.
A senior Metropolitan Police source told Now magazine: ‘She could have killed someone. How can anyone who has their eyes off the road for that amount of time be in complete control of a vehicle?
‘It’s clearly a main road with plenty of people about.
‘Anyone could have run out in the middle of the road and she wouldn’t have seen them or had enough time to stop, this is completely irresponsible behaviour.’
Zoella’s spokesperson made the following statement: ‘Zoe is an extremely careful and conscientious driver.
‘At the time of filming she was in mostly stationary traffic.
‘She takes road safety very seriously and would never do anything deliberately to counteract this.’
Zoella, real name Zoe Suggs, recently endured ridicule after it turned out her new book, Girl Online, was partially ghost written.
