The accident was attended by a police officer who was patrolling the road at the time. North Yorkshire Police were also monitoring the filming.

The BBC said the car had 'skidded' and come to an almost immediate stop.

It was travelling within the 60mph speed limit for the road.

Photos shared on social media show the Diablo and two other supercars in convoy before the crash.
