Well i don't know whats going on with these local rags, but if they persist with those annoying adds that blank my screen i won't bother with them anymore.
The same things just started happening with the Huddersfield examiner !!
Damned annoying and a big NO NO !!

If it was and it rolled that far thatx an MOT failure and the insurers should refuse to pay out - especially parked on a junction like that.
As for the van I think it's a ford transit connect. Drove one a year or two back for my employer of the time (real old heap it was too).

Illigally parked on not it could be seen so the van driver would still be at fault.

Alright the van itself in general may be ok, but the one I drove had a SCREAMING fan belt so loud you could barely hear yourself think and then to make matters worse the window winding handle was broken - PITA at the dartford crossing. The handle I could live with.. the fanbelt stayed with me and my ears all evening.

Re: anyclue what this van is

Is it my imagination or is the blue car moving just before the van hits it? Is it a stunt I ask myself?  Cheesy

Re: anyclue what this van is

I don`t think so... it appears that way, because the actual impact moment is missed between the frames of the video

Re: anyclue what this van is

Set-up for the insurance ,I should think.
Even the guy who 'turned-up in his car' to give directions......47 seconds after the 'accident'.
Was he superman, with x-ray vision? He must have been some distance away at time, and the guy ,Mr Connor, was in his car remarkably quickly, with barely enough time lapsed to open the car door and start the car before pulling forward into view.
All too much of a coincidence if you ask me.
next, he'll be saying it was Lord Lucan driving ( and I know it wasn't him as he was collecting trollies at my local supermarket  Wink ).
