THIS footage appears to show a van vaulting over a roundabout – in a video that’s divided the internet, with many claiming it's a fake.

The silver Citroen van is filmed hurtling along a dual carriageway but fails to stop and launches 12ft into the air.

The 'Duke of Hazzard' moment, which has been watched 2.7 million times, has split the internet – with many commentators saying it is clearly fake.

Motorcyclist Andy Daynes, 35, claimed he captured the footage on his helmet cam while driving behind the van on the A11 at Attleborough, Norfolk, earlier this year.

Andy, from Hingham, in Norwich said: "I was actually on my motorbike behind him so I saw it all.

"I pulled over along with some other drivers to see if he was OK.

"He had to be cut out of the van - but he seemed to be alright, he wasn't badly injured.

"It is quite a bad roundabout, he just didn't see what was coming because he was going so fast.

"He was on his own, he had a few cuts and bruises but the ambulance came straight away and took him to hospital.

"He just didn't see the roundabout coming."

However many commentators online have said the video is a fake.

One said: "If that van was carrying enough speed to launch, it would reappear at the far side of the roundabout. Also if it was a helmet cam, why didn't he move his head?

"Stunt drivers put big ramps in to get that much air. The van, if it was true, would have ploughed through the roundabout."

Others questioned why Mr Daynes had only just uploaded the video, that he claimed to have taken in January.

Norfolk police today said it was trying to establish whether it had a record of the incident which Mr Daynes said happened in January.
