This morning about 6.30am a lorry crashed into the sign posts just in front of our house. The lorry must have taken the wrong route and tried to reverse. This is a continuous occurrence happening several times a day and during the night and is becoming a nuisance to our community. The driver as reversing drove up the curb churned up the grass verge and proceeded to knock over 2 road signs while damaging his lights on the lorry. We managed to get a photo of the lorry and the name of the company which is Moran but unfortunately no number plate. I have also added photos of the damage and lorry. Is there anything that can be done to stop the lorrys from trying to use this as a short cut or using it as a turning round point. Maybe a sign possibly that can be put up at the beginning of road coming into New Road to say no lorries?? As this seems to be a regular occurrence the lorries seem to think this is a short cut then realising its a country road and then having to turn around. I shall leave the matter with you but if your require any further information feel free to contact me. Thanks Lucy Copeland 07905941685
