The motorist also drove past a police car heading in the opposite direction.

Officers, who were able to track the car via CCTV, have now revealed it took a wrong turn out of the car park at Falkirk Town Hall, mistakenly heading right when traffic is prohibited from doing so.

A spokesman said the force is satisfied protocols were followed during the incident as the passing police car had been carrying out “police duties” and couldn’t stop.
