Hawkshead Road closed 02/05/2015
« on: May 02, 2015, 11:02:16 pm »
Hawkshead Road has been closed since approx 18:00 this evening and was still closed when I came home at about 22:30. It looks as though there has been an accident.

The WHTimes has the story and police are appealing for witnesses and information:

I hope the cyclist is ok. Cyclists on that stretch of road are brave I've walked it a couple of times but it's far too dangerous to do it again.

Might help the appeal for witnesses if the WHTimes could get the name and position of the road correct. It was Hawkshead Road, not Hawkshead Lane.

I suppose they just reproduced what they were given by the police.

Yes, I'm forgetting that the job of a journalist is to repost stuff Twitter and news feeds. No need for fact checking or any investigation.
