In the dashcam footage the vehicle is seen heading down West Bridge Street towards the Town Hall as a series of cars drive the opposite way.

And not only was the motorist fortunate to avoid an accident but he was also lucky to escape the attention of officers in a police car they passed.

Police have since confirmed an internal inquiry has been launched to investigate the incident further.
