Footage showing a super car reaching speeds of 60-70mph on a major Preston road has landed the driver in trouble with police.

YouTube clips shared widely on social media showed the Mercedes tearing down Garstang Road.

Starting up at the Broughton roundabout the reckless driving is capturing during the near two minutes of video.

The car drives at terrifying speeds through Fulwood – tailgating drivers, pulling out into oncoming traffic and at one point having to go onto the other side of the road to avoid a crash.

As the drivers approaches the junction of Aqueduct Street and North Road the car skids with the driver nearly losing control.
