Blue 9th gen by the look of it, will try and get dash cam images in the morning. Looked pretty beat up, I hope nobody was badly injured.

A1 northbound closed near Great Ponton around 6pm this evening.

2 fire trucks snaked thru the queueing traffic.

Turned my 2hr commute into almost a 4hr saga #sigh. I averaged a whopping 28mph

Freeze frame isn't clear for some reason, so excuse the quality.

We got caught up in that too.

I was SafED training (Safe and Fuel Efficient Driving) on a trunk to our Liverpool depot. Normally I come off the A1 on the A606 and go Oakham, Melton, Kegworth, A50 to Stoke, A500 ---> M6 J16 Knowlsey but as I was training I have to let him do his thing then correct him on the return journey.

He chose A1 to A52, A453 to A50 etc. Which is a good way now the A453 is finished but it puts you at the mercy of the morons (The busier the road the more chance of the morons intervening !!).

As a consequence and just after we passed the crappy B676 we came to a standstill and ½ hour of queuing turned south to Colsterworth and back down the crappy B676 to Melton anyway !!

Lost over an hour on that journey and MPG's to hell !!

Listen to Mr SafED trainer... He knows best !!!
