What are we coming to?

I was one of those caught up in the chaos last Wednesday morning caused by the hole at Godley.

Common sense would have seen someone with the right powers nip down to B&Q to buy a couple of bags of gravel to fill the hole as a temporary measure until the asphalt arrived.

A suitable sign to say ‘Drive Slowly’ and hours of grief for the thousands affected could have been avoided.
