Incredible footage shows the moment a family of fourteen arrive home and climb out a Vauxhall Corsa.

Five adults and nine children were packed into the tiny vehicle that was parked on Langham Road in Blackburn on Saturday evening.

James Bowen, 33 was visiting friends in the Shear Brow area of the Lancashire town when he spotted the overloaded vehicle being driven past.

Speaking today James said: “I saw the car drive past and park, I initially thought there was 1-2 extra passengers in the car.

“I started to film them all getting out the car for a laugh but what unfolded was unbelievable.”

To top it off the boot pops open and another two adults a man and a woman get out.

Children run around with their arms in their arm enjoying their new found freedom.

James shared the footage online and it has since been viewed 2.5 million times, shared 30,000 and attracted 20,000 comments.

RAC spokesman Simon Williams said: “The consequences of having so many children and adults unrestrained in a car that is then involved in a collision are truly frightening.

“The law says all car passengers should individually wear seat belts, if fitted, for a very good reason.”

Edmund King, AA president, said: “If a car is driven on the highway it is essential that every occupant has a seatbelt otherwise even a small child can be thrown forward with the velocity of small elephant.”

Lancashire Police have confirmed that the incident hadn’t been reported to them.

In November 2012, 28 women set the Guinness World Record for the most people in a Mini One and 23 in a classic Mini – however to be clear the vehicle was not being driven at the time.
