Footage captures London motorist's epic driving fail

Updated: 

This is the hilarious moment an idiotic motorist attempts to drive his car off after it has been wheel clamped.

The man, who is allegedly a Transport for London employee, can be seen trying to drive away in his grey Toyota, seemingly without any thought for the bright yellow clamp that has been attached to its front offside wheel.

Another man then approaches the vehicle, and can be heard warning the driver about the serious damage he could do to his car.

After trying, and failing, to drive off, the Toyota driver can then be seen abandoning his car in the road, before walking off down the street.

The onlooker who caught the incident on video is left in stitches, and can be heard repeating the phrase "what an absolute...".

It is unclear from the video if the Toyota was eventually removed.
