Two people have died following a crash in Minster.

  1. This whole road has been badly designed ending in a nightmare situation at the Lord Of The Manor traffic lights/roundabout with no hard shoulder to pull over into if your vehicle breaks down. I have been involved with a similar experience here just a month ago and it was frightening trying to put a tow rope on the car broken down with vehicles speeding past so close. Changes need to be put in place for sanctuary, and especially by the traffic lights.
