Footage taken from the scene appears to show a red Bounds taxi blocking the way of another black car in Victoria Gardens, off Victoria Promenade, in the town centre at around 5.50pm yesterday (July 4).

The two drivers spoke to each other and a video posted on the social media app Snapchat shows the driver of the black car getting back in his vehicle.

The two cars then appear to try and pull away at the same time, with the black car apparently being forced onto the pavement.
