Police looking into footage of woman twerking on Auckland Harbour Bridge

Police are investigating video footage shared to Facebook of a woman twerking in the middle of Auckland's Harbour Bridge.

The video, uploaded to the social media platform on Thursday, shows a group of people driving up the Harbour Bridge, explicitly speaking about the police, with a female occupant at one point yelling: "F*** the police". 

"Ha, ha watch this," a woman says before the car pulls over onto a strip in the middle of the bridge separating lanes heading northwards.

As cars zoom past in the 80km/hr area, a woman quickly gets out and walks to the front of the car. With the camera filming, the woman bends down and begins twerking, a dance move involving the thrusting of hips and shaking the buttocks. The woman then moves to the driver's side of the car and twerks again. 

Once back inside the car, the woman speaks to the camera, blasting out a number of expletives.

The video has been uploaded to Facebook with the caption "first one to shake thur ass in the harbour bridge (sic)".

Comments on the video include people calling her "crazy" and her behaviour "awesome" with laughing emojis. One person said it was "crack up", while the woman who uploaded it said "I'm a do it again (sic)".

Tamaki Makaurau road policing manager Scott Webb told Newshub: "Police are making enquiries into this video". 

"We take instances such as this seriously and Police are following strong lines of enquiry in relation to the individuals involved."

Insp Webb said, in general, motorists should only stop on the motorway in the event of an emergency. 

"We encourage anyone who witnesses any dangerous or reckless driving behaviour that puts other motorists at risk to notify Police immediately by phoning 111."

The bridge is no stranger to different types of stunts and seemingly dangerous behaviour. Prankster Johnny Danger once climbed on top of a taxi for 20 seconds while it crossed the bridge, while an Auckland photographer once hung out a car to get the perfect shot.
