A car has been filmed driving the wrong way along a dual carriageway, forcing at least one other vehicle to swerve to avoid a crash.

Police say traffic officers had been given permission to use a 'box manoeuvre' to bring the car to a stop on the A30 near Camborne in Cornwall.

The car was travelling west on the eastbound carriageway at about 09:30 GMT on Tuesday.

A 58-year-old woman from St Merryn, Cornwall, has been arrested and bailed.

Police said the woman has been bailed until Monday 24 April while they investigate a potential dangerous driving offence.
