A motorist who performed a U-turn and then rammed head-on into another car on the A140 will face no further action after the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) reviewed the case.
Jonathan Steward, who was travelling in the car with his two children, shared the footage of the incident which happened just after the roundabout at Dickleburgh on the A140 between Diss and Norwich.
The BBC reports the CPS said there was 'not sufficient evidence' to establish who was driving the other car.
It is claimed that there was some confusion at the roundabout prior to the footage beginning where Mr Steward said the Ford driver tried to clip his car.
The footage then shows the Ford driver stopping in the middle of the road for a period of time before moving off. The driver then goes out of sight of Mr Steward before performing a U-turn and driving straight towards him. Mr Steward slows his car to a stop as the car approaches him and rams into his car once from the front before clipping it from the side and driving off.

Mr Steward was in the car with his nine-year-old daughter and his 13-year-old son and said they were left traumatised by the incident.
It happened in September and initially the CPS said it would not consider the case but Mr Steward appealed.
