A driver from Taverham has released a string of dashcam footage showing near-misses on roundabouts on the Broadland Northway.

Joe Holden, 20, said the videos had been captured over the last few months on the road, which is better known to many as the NDR.

After becoming frustrated with the lane layout on the roundabouts - and drivers using them - he decided to upload the videos to Twitter, and said he would continue to do so.

Mr Holden, from Taverham, isn’t the only driver criticising the roundabouts - there has been a spate of crashes on the roundabouts, and a driving instructor even warned that a serious accident could soon happen.

While Norfolk County Council has maintained that the roundabouts are safe, in August they said seven people had been injured travelling on the road between November, when the first stretch was opened, and May.

They confirmed they were looking at ways of improving the roundabouts and better informing drivers.
