The footage - recorded from a Lancashire Police car's dash camera at 8:10am this morning (January 2) - shows a white van turning right at Cemetary Island roundabout in New Hall Lane, Preston, when the lane it is in is for ahead only.

The van narrowly avoids colliding with a HGV turning right, with the van undertaking the large vehicle to turn down Blackpool Road.

In a tweet, Lancashire Road Police said: "Driver stopped, given stern words, and reported for driving without due care and attention. Completely unacceptable driving."
