The clips of conversation were captured on camera by the other driver who has now posted the road rage incident to You Tube.

Cllr Newell, a Fenland district councillor, chairman of the corporate governance committee and a former chairman of Chatteris Town Council, said she remembers seeing the other motorist “filming something”.

She also recalls making a “derogatory remark” but says she was firmly in the right and it was the motorist who took the film who was in the wrong.

Cllr Newell said the incident happened when the other driver failed to wait whilst an obstruction on his side of the road was cleared.
