Holidaymaker Nick Hodges was driving home to Devon from Heathrow around 6.50pm on Boxing Day when they encountered the rogue vehicle.

The couple and other motorists narrowly avoided a collision as they frantically swerved into the nearest lane.

Mr Hodges said so Salisbury Journal: “As we drove past the final Andover intersection, there was this horrifying moment when my wife and I both realized the lights ahead weren’t coming from the opposite lane.

“I hit the brakes and made a left turn which caused the car to skid but luckily the stability control kicked in and I was able to correct it.

“I’m so glad it didn’t rain and the lane next to me was empty – we’d just passed a couple of cars so it could easily have been a disaster.”

Other drivers who overtook the vehicle branded the motorist “incredibly dangerous.”

One social media user tweeted: “Just spent a lovely day with my daughter and granddaughter but I almost didn’t make it home.

“As I passed Andover on the A303, I encountered a car traveling the wrong way in my lane.

“Luckily I was in light traffic at the time. That must have caused an accident later.”

Another wrote: “I drove past this car last night too.

“I was on the inside lane at the time so didn’t have to swerve, but it looked like a fatal accident was going to happen. Incredibly dangerous.”

It comes after shocking footage showed the moment a van exploded on the wrong side in the fast lane of a motorway in Norfolk.
