A resident of Dark Lane has asked us to put out an appeal regarding an incident on Dark Lane on Wednesday morning last week – approximately some time between 7 and 8:30am.
"It seems that a large lorry attempted to drive down Dark Lane from the Andertons/Church Lane end. Having been far too large for the width of the lane, and height of overhanging trees, it seems the driver decided to reverse back up the lane and back out onto Andertons/Church Lane. In the process damaging and breaking the telegraph pole which carries the phone line to the house, destroying a reversing mirror that was placed opposite the drive, damaging hedges and trees and badly churning up the verges. "
The incident has been reported to Open Reach and Police.
Did you see anything? Perhaps a large red lorry reversing out of Dark Lane that morning, or on Church Lane with signs of damage and vegetation hanging from its rear? Please let us know.
If anyone has any further information that might help, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
We will pass the information on.
