Shocking footage shows 'selfish' drivers causing chaos

Drivers stuck in traffic on Monday evening are recorded travelling the wrong way to avoid queues after a woman threatened to jump off a bridge near Queensferry

Footage from a motorist's dashboard camera shows 'selfish' drivers doing u-turns on a Flintshire slip road during an emergency.

Long traffic queues formed on the A494 near Queensferry on Monday, January 11, when a woman threatened to jump from a bridge on Welsh Road.

The video, which was captured by a motorist on his dashboard camera, shows impatient drivers causing mayhem by reversing, attempting U-turns and even driving in the wrong direction up the hard shoulder.

Several of the drivers escaped the A494 via a road marked as 'no public right of way'.

He said: "By their selfish, unthinking and (in my opinion) illegal use of the hard shoulder/emergency lane, these drivers could potentially have cost someone their life by delaying the emergency services, and could have caused injury to members of the emergency services team responding to the incident."
