    Nasty prang and I wish the driver all the best for a quick recovery but the driver simply pushed it too far and ran out of talent. Police have said no other vehicles were involved and are refusing to comment on how it happened. Speaks volumes that does

    I'm sure this happened before, is it the same incident? There's definitely a previous thread where they wrote off a fast VW, 'might' have been a Scirocco I can't remember.

    EDIT it says it happened in Dec.

    Nice to see our hard earned speed fines going to good causes.

    Small point.... revenue raised from tickets goes to the "Courts Service" - or Central Government funds rather that to the Force that issued it.
