Have your say

Highways England traffic officers were stunned to spot this van just casually abandoned on an A1 exit slip road.

The vehicle, which appears to be a trades van, was left parked across a lane on the A1/M18 interchange roundabout at Wadworth, near Doncaster, because the driver had run out of fuel at around 11am this morning.

Describing the position as 'peculiar', officers had to request a recovery truck to remove it as it was causing an obstruction to traffic leaving the motorway.

All lanes have now re-opened.
