Commuters were left outraged when the driver of a four-wheel drive cut past a queue of 30 cars waiting at a roundabout during the busy morning rush hour, disregarding the rules of the road.

Dash cam footage of the erratic driving was shared on Facebook following the incident on the A137 on Tuesday, September 24.

One member of the community described the driving as "crazy", while others urged the owner of the footage to share it with police.

The vehicle had apparently overtaken a lane of 30 cars before it reached the roundabout, leading to concerns about road safety.

The matter has been reported to police.

"The motorist was given appropriate advice regarding their manner of driving."
