This is the moment an unsuspecting driver came face-to-face with a car coming the wrong way down a dual carriage way slip road.

Ray Valentine captured the video on Tuesday, May 14 at about 9am as he was about to join the A11 at the Wymondham bypass.

As he was about to speed up a Toyata Yaris can be seen driving towards him. Mr Valentine was able to stop as the Yaris took avoiding action after realising it was travelling the wrong way.

Mr Valentine said: "I did not think it was wise to have a head-on collision.

"If you look carefully you will see the car exit the roundabout and enter the slip road, so I did wonder how they turned around so quickly."
