    Default What a journey home tonight

    Two things happened tonight...

    Firstly I leave the M60 to join the M56 via the "Sharston Link". As I get to the end of the slip road and go to look over my shoulder, I realise something isn't right. I look forward and see a Cyclist trying to coss the motorway in front of me.

    So quick call to the police cause the guy was surely going to be toast.

    Then M53 J9. Someting serious had happened and the slip road was closed. Lots of police, Ambulance and Fire crews and a tarpaulin over the cab of a lorry. It looked very serious, Hope no one was hurt. Got to say the emergency crews looked quite glum.

    Tarpaulins and grim looking crews are never a good sign....

    Hate hearing about accidents like this. Noticed a very heavy amount of traffic going through my town yesterday about 4 ish. Then half an hour later tons of lorries go past. Heard from a few customers about a bad crash near the Bothwell services. Finished work the back of 6 and there were tailbacks the full length of the town!!

    Made me thankful i live local

    My neighbour works for Esso as a Tanker driver. The grapevine may already have some more details. I'll ask him tonight.

    I didn't leave work until after 7 last night so missed all this thankfully.
