Former BBC wildlife producer Fergus Beeley has gone viral after he was filmed in a crazed fit of road rage, where he told a man and his family to "put your hands on the car and get ready to die."

Simon Gale, 33, was driving along the motorway with his wife Louise, son and mother-in-law, when he became involved in a minor crash. They then stopped in a car park to exchange details.

As Gale gets out the car, a woman says: "You said you want us dead," to which he replies, "I do want you dead". He then half-heartedly forces the father's hands against his vehicle.

He continues, screaming: "You're under a citizen's arrest, you're under a citizen's arrest, and I tell you what…"

He then points at the small child, any semblance of sanity lost, no way back now.

"...you are, too!"
