Paul Scholes films young son on his phone while driving in new Instagram video

PAUL Scholes risks falling foul of the law as he films his young son while driving in an Instagram video.

The Manchester United legend took the footage of Aiden eating chips as the pair drove around together.

Scholes can be heard proudly talking to Aiden as he says a light is "green" – meaning they can "go".

It was posted on Instagram yesterday but has now been removed.

Driving while holding a mobile phone is illegal and could land Scholes with a £200 fine and six penalty points if caught.

The case could also go to court where he would face a driving ban and a maximum fine of £1,000.

It has been illegal to touch a mobile phone – even with a hands-free set – while driving since 2003.

The law applies even if you are stopped at traffic lights or queuing in traffic as your engine is still running.

Scholes only joined Instagram yesterday morning but has already amassed 43,000 followers.


He also posted a video of Aiden receiving a gruelling sports massage with the caption: "Relax Aiden".

The footballer has previously opened up about his son's battle with autism, which hinders communication skills and social interaction.

He said: "We hope his condition improves but we're not banking on it, just doing everything we can to make sure he has a happy life.

"He has a load of people trying to help him, speech and play therapists for example."

The video comes just weeks after his oldest son Arron avoided jail for beating up a school friend in a pub brawl.

Arron, 19, was found guilty of attacking Robert Kemper, 21, as he smoked a fag after England's 2-1 World Cup win over Tunisia.

Scholes won 11 Premier League titles, three FA Cups and the Champions League twice in a glittering career at Man United.

The former midfielder was capped 66 times by his country.

He quit as Oldham boss last month after one win in seven matches.

The 44-year-old signed an 18-month deal in February to take his first step in management with his boyhood club.

But things quickly went awry and Scholes left claiming it had become "clear that (he) would not be able to operate as intended and was led to believe prior to taking on the role".
