This is the moment a man tried to catch a London double-decker by standing in the middle of the road and waving it down. 

Security cameras recorded the man's novel approach on September 13 at 11.11am on Greyhound Lane in Streatham. 

The CCTV footage shows the man walking on the pavement moments before the 118 service to Brixton comes into view.

Once the bus stops the man points with his right hand and walks over to get on, but the driver keeps his doors closed and drives off.

The man briefly running alongside the bus before giving up on his bid to hail it.

The clip was shared online and it has since been viewed over 12,500 times, received over 200 comments, reactions and shares.

One user commented: 'As a rule, anybody who walks or runs out into the road in front of me, I will do everything in my power to make sure they don't catch my bus.'

Another wrote: 'Well done Mr bus driver, what a plum doing that, could have been a machete wielding man or robber.'

A third said: 'For anyone that doesn't know why buses refuse to let passengers on like this is because its against the law, you must only pick up and drop of at designated spots for insurance purposes too, if the passenger falls climbing on then the driver will be sued and sacked.' 

John Mulvey, 54, who shared the footage, said: 'As an ex-bus driver, I know this would never work.

'If he had walked up to the cab window and explained his emergency or asked the driver he might have been more successful.'

The London's professional bus drivers Big Red Book handbook states: 'Do not let people board the bus once it has pulled away from the stop, for example, at traffic lights.

'If there is a long delay, such as roadworks or a collision, you can allow customers off the bus between stops, provided it is safe to do so and wherever possible, only allow customers off from the front doors in these situations.'
