Multiple "reckless" drivers have been arrested as a video of them racing on the Emirates Road went viral.

The vehicles did not have number plates and the arrested youths were racing on the Umm Al Quwain stretch of the Emirates Road.

The person who shot the video and posted it on social media has been arrested as well, the Ministry of Interior said on Thursday.

A video posted by the ministry shows five illegally modified vehicles seized after the arrests were made.

The ministry explained that the videographer was arrested as he was "supposed to cooperate" with the police in having the youths arrested and not post the video on social media.
