A video showing a car driving the wrong way across the Foyle Bridge in Derry - Londonderry has gone viral.

The footage was filmed on a dashboard camera located within another car travelling on the bridge.

Police say the red Rover 25 had been involved in a two car-crash on the Waterside-bound lane.

The driver is then thought to have performed an illegal U-turn and travelled city-bound into traffic on the wrong side of the dual carriageway. 

No-one was injured during the incident which happened at around 4pm on Thursday afternoon. 

The car was later abandoned in the Mansfield Grove area of the city and taken away by police for further examination. 

They've appealed to anyone who witnessed the incident to contact Strand Road Police Station on the non-emergency number 101, quoting reference number 834 of 17/08/16.
