    "The driver said the pelican swooping into sight caused him to drop his mobile phone"

    So he was holding his phone while driving a £1m 1000hp car. I suppose if you can afford a £1m car, you can afford to lose it.

    You'll note that the air-brake/spoiler is in the raised position. This rather implies a speed somewhat higher than 65mph limit in the Bay Area!

    OK, so having watched Martin's find, maybe it wasn't so fast, but nor did I see any pelicans (or Lambo for that mater!)

    well, the air brake was certainly no use as a floatation device.
