A holidaymaker in North Wales was filmed climbing into a speed camera and flashing cars that passed by. Watch footage of the elaborate prank below:

The video was captured outside the Lyons Winkups Holiday Park on Thursday morning in the early hours.

Reported by NorthWalesLive, the man was 'killing some time' whilst waiting for his wife to get a takeaway pizza.

He was sat inside the camera's casing and flashed the ongoing cars. Some drivers fell for the prank and most likely crapped themselves.

The prankster said: "We were waiting outside for our pizzas when I noticed a hole in the back of the speed camera.

"At that point, I thought it would be a funny way of killing some time to climb up and flash the passing cars to see if they'd slow down.

He said: "I flashed one person who went by in a mobility scooter and told them to slow down.

"I just took a run-up and managed to climb in. I was quite surprised the next day, when I saw the speed camera, that I had managed it to be honest."

The couple are originally from Wirral and were on holiday at a caravan park with family.

The man's wife posted the clip on Facebook and it has so far been viewed over 17,000 times.

One user commented: "Hahahahaha this is amazing."

A second user wrote: "that's the best thing I've seen for a long time hilarious!!!!xxxx."

In related news, a former delivery driver has accumulated 78 points on his licence after being caught by the same speed camera 26 times in just three months - in turn racking up hundreds of pounds in fines.

Phillip Dodd, 63, was repeatedly caught out by the Gatso speed camera as he drove his van at speeds of between 56mph and 63mph along a 50mph stretch of the M62 near Manchester.

Dodd claims he never had any idea of his driving offences, having never received any Notice of Intended Prosecutions (NIP) from police as the Citroen Berlingo van was not registered in his name.

It wasn't until he moved in with his partner and registered the vehicle in his name with the DVLA that 26 separate NIP tickets came through his letter box.
