What's going on, gone on, why, when will it clear? We need a railway station in every town, village & hamlet, maxium train fare £2, services every 10 minutes 24/7. And people should learn to walk!!

Since the advent of satnav, I'm sure there have been more lorries on the C7, up Winterbourne Hollow and through the town centre than ever before. I'm convinced it's because it's because satnav sends them the shortest way rather than the most appropriate.

As far as I could see, the lorry was facing *down* Station Street. Either that's a complete 180 jacknife, or the silly bugger had driven the wrong way down. Maybe his satnav sent him that way...

Lorry apparently slipped on oil on the road and slid back down Station Street (jack-knifing in the process). It was a European lorry

The C7 has a 7.5 tonne limit except for access, other HGVs shouldn't be on there anyway.
