Shocking footage has captured the moment a driver took off from a service station with a petrol pump still attached to their car.

The footage, which was posted online, shows the bowser almost being ripped out of the ground as the motorist leaves, making the line reach breaking point and snap back.
Two women filling up their cars on either side of the petrol pump instinctively jumped away from the hose.
Another woman was attempting to pay at a self-service station just behind the petrol pump and the flying nozzle narrowly missed her head.
The woman ducked and sprang out of the way as the hose grazed her left arm while shocked bystanders looked on.
The Shell petrol station is trying to track down the driver and the female customer in the hopes of offering her free fuel.
