There were chaotic scenes during a half-marathon in Plymouth over the weekend when a driver ignored road restrictions and drove onto the course during the middle of the race.

The moment was captured on film as the driver knocks over a traffic cone and ignores a passer-by who tries to stop the car entering the course.

Runners in the race are seen having to avoid the slow-moving intruder who responds to those who are shouting at her that she has "tried to get out every way".

It is understood nobody was injured in the incident.
