This is the embarrassing moment a driver struggles to reverse along a narrow country lane as a waiting motorist films her and gives a commentary on her erratic progress. 

The woman in the white hatchback took a painful three minutes to back down the country road in Redbourn, Hertfordshire, while the traffic jam of cars in front of her grew longer. 

Dashcam footage from the car in front captures her steering too far left, and right, rolling forward and veering into the bushes. 

As the woman keeps turning her steering wheel the agitated filmer exclaims: ‘No, no, no keep straight.’
