Massive amount of emergency vehicles on Barnston Road, near Bassett Hound Pub . No details but road is closed. [b][/b]

It's still closed. According to locals, a 4 x 4 got knocked off the road and ended upside down, due to someone speeding with no room to overtake. They drove off.

Not sure if other vehicles were involved too.

This has been a bone of contention with myself for ages. It was 40mph, a few went a bit faster so the local councillor got it reduced to 30mph.

Since then it is more dangerous as nearly all travel at 40mph and those doing 30mph are constantly overtaken, vehicles up your backside or shoved out of the way.

It's very dangerous now, far more than when it was 40mph.

Man arrested for driving while disqualified, woman had injuries to hands and knees and at least one person went to hospital.

My post was not immediate either. Probably 5 mins or more afterwards.
Thinking about it, it must have been 10 mins or more. I heard sirens, and another sirens and then another siren before I even suspected anything was so local.
Pretty impressive to be honest. We have to be quite proud of them.

2 Fire engines, 6 or more police cars, not sure about ambulances, but , blue flashing lights for as far as you could see.
