WRECKERS YARD: Tipped tanker puzzles pedestrians and police

A budding Lewis Hamilton rounded a corner in the village of Throckmorton, Worcestershire in a bit of a hurry and this was the result.

Tipped tanker

In his haste, the driver cut the corner – John Deere 6920 and tanker rode up onto the verge at ‘a reasonable lick’. But the bowser couldn’t handle the pace and opted for a swift lie-down.

The police closed the road for an hour and half as the recovery operation got underway.

Fortunately no-one was hurt even though the tank was only secured to the body of the trailer by a couple of ratchet-straps.
