A dashboard camera mounted in the truck captures the Honda Civic as it attempts to pull onto the M25 between two lorries.

But the driver badly misjudged the space between them and the clips front wing of the rear lorry - causing it to flip sideways and parallel to the front grille.

Despite the perilous situation, the lorry driver remains composed and calmly brings his vehicle and the Honda safely to a standstill on the hard shoulder.
