Trailer crashes into Community Junction

News was posted into the forum last night about a traffic incident in the centre of the village.

A trailer apparently lost control and hit a wall of the newly opened Community Junction. See this forum post for details.

The damage was relatively minor, and thankfully there were no serious injuries. Reports say that the police attended, and the tractor driver and the owner were very quick to clear the debris and arrange repairs.

It has been commented that this is the type of incident, involving large farm vehicles, that would become more likely with the increased volume of farm traffic that the proposed anaerobic digester would bring.

If you want more information on this particular subject it has also been discussed on the forum, in this post, and others. In addition, a news article appears here.
