These brazen drivers were caught on camera taking a sneaky shortcut through a field to avoid an 11-mile diversion.

The desperate drivers stopped at nothing to avoid a 20-metre section of a main road which is currently closed for roadworks.

The off-road route has become a popular diversion amongst impatient motorists – including a Royal Mail van which was spotted taking the shortcut.

The field leads on to the back of residential homes where neighbours say cars have been cutting through the area for at least a year.

The cars can often be seen avoiding the roadworks in the village of Lakenheath, Suffolk because it seems they aren’t prepared to go the long way round.
