National Highways publishes video of wrong-way driver in A12 roadworks

National Highways has tweeted footage of a vehicle which drove through a stretch of roadworks on the A12 in Essex, only to turn around and drive against the traffic.

In the clip, a black SUV enters the work site near Brentwood, before turning around and driving in the wrong direction.

This follows footage of a woman moving cones to try to get out of a queue in another set of roadworks on the A12 further north in Essex.

The 66-year-old from south London was issued with a conditional caution. She was also fined £100, with the money going to a road worker safety charity.

National Highways is worried about the dramatic increase in the number of roadwork incursions.
