The temporary traffic lights are clearly red with a 4x4 vehicle turning left out of a side road as the Volkswagen Passat overtakes Shujah's car at speed on the wrong side of the road, passes through the red light, narrowly avoids a head on crash and swerves back onto the correct side of the road.

The footage has been sent on to Cambridgeshire Poilice.
