WITNESS SOUGHT AFTER VAN DRIVER ALLEGEDLY USED INDICATORS

Police are appealing for witnesses after motorists reported that a supermarket delivery driver used his indicators before turning right at a junction.

A Sussex Police spokesman said "The van driver's actions caused significant confusion to motorists who became disorientated through shock. This could have resulted in a serious collision".

In a written statement, the supermarket said "We would like to apologise to motorists for any distress caused. Our driver told us he was reaching for his mobile phone, and his arm accidentally caught the indicator just before his right-turn."

I agree.

Robbery clearly wasn't the motive for him being challenged, and bikers have better things to do with their time than chasing vans for no reason.
