Three cars slide into Hatfield garden in one day
THREE cars nearly ended up in a front garden in one day, after roads were left “like a sheet of ice”.
The crashes, in Robins Way, Hatfield, all took place on Christmas Eve, and were blamed on a lack of gritting.
Resident Mick Chapple told the WHT: “There was a sheet of ice that night, and motors came down the hill and went over it straight into the hedge.
“The people rang the council the next day and asked for some grit and they said the gritters are on holiday.”
Mr Chapple added: “The crash barriers were replaced by little posts and concrete bollards, which don’t actually stop the cars.”
