The moment a woman appears to drive through a half marathon route in the centre of Plymouth has been caught on camera.

The Britain's Ocean City Half Marathon took place in the city centre on Sunday.

A series of road closures were in place to accommodate the running route, but one driver managed to end up in the middle of the race.

It happened near Bretonside and it was caught on camera by eye witness Rob Bricknell and it's going viral online.

Police say there were no reports of injuries but their roads team is investigating.
