In this latest footage, sent to the Peterborough Telegraph by reader Wayne Palmer, a small red hatchback can be seen on the right hand side of the screen driving along a city centre pavement at some speed before swerving across oncoming traffic, narrowly missing a cyclist wearing high-visibility clothing, before re-joining the correct side of the carriageway.

The footage was captured on Broadway in Peterborough in January this year (note the date and time on the camera were not set).

Wayne Palmer said: “In 30 years of driving, this is probably the most dangerous driving I’ve ever seen.”
