Sgt Easton, the driver, was as cool-as-a-cucumber when he broadcast on INTOP1: “We need to close the A1 now: a lorry has just toppled onto my patrol car. And I just polished it yesterday!” I nearly spilt my mug of tea but was quickly reassured when told the BMW was a ‘64 plate! pic.twitter.com/eX6lDJGUXy— CS Stewart Carle (@ChSuptRoads) December 10, 2019
Relieved that one of my Road Patrol Sergeants was not seriously injured earlier today on A1 carrying out scene protection after RTCs. Another HGV passing his static location was blown over onto the patrol car! #JobLikeNoOther pic.twitter.com/BR0eBPvo89— CS Stewart Carle (@ChSuptRoads) December 10, 2019
