David Beckham has been banned from driving for six months for using his phone behind the wheel.

He pleaded guilty to looking at the phone while in slow-moving traffic in London in November last year.

In addition to the ban, he also received a fine and received six points on his licence.

Is there an increasing problem with drivers looking at their phones instead of concentrating on the road?

Dee Reddy and Donal O'Donoghue discussed this and more in The Week Trending.

Other stories include the opening of an alcohol-free bar in Dublin, Danny Baker's firing from the BBC over a racist tweet, and the news that Uber is now worth $82 billion.
