Hair-raising dashcam footage has shown a near miss involving mobile roadworks.

The video was taken on the A1075 between Thetford and Watton on March 14 by Bill Pitwood.

It shows the car in front approach a blind corner, on which there is a mobile roadworks tractor on the side of the road.

An oncoming car is already overtaking the tractor and the car in front of Mr Pitwood is forced to swerve into the verge.

Mr Pitwood said: “Anyone travelling on the Watton-Thetford road, watch out for the mobile roadworks. Drive carefully out there.”
