Fenland riverside road closed after collision close to piggery involving two parked cars
THE Sixteen Foot Bank was closed yesterday evening after a collision close to a piggery.
The collision, about 1km north of Bedlam Bridge on the outskirts of March, closed the road between 5.15pm and 5.50pm.
Fenland road safety campaigner Graham Chappell took these photographs of police at the scene shortly after the collision and said: “As far as I am aware there were no other emergency vehicles called to the scene at the time and no vehicles entered the river opposite, on this occasion.
“It would appear, thankfully that there have been no serious injuries, or worse, as a result of this accident. As ever, with the Sixteen Foot Drain immediately adjacent, it could easily have been a very different story.”
Mr Chappell said, however, that two residents had spoken of cars being parked hazardously on the verge outside the piggery during the day.

“One spoke of an incident occurring at the same location earlier in the day and the other observed a passing vehicle having to take evasive action at short notice only minutes before the accident that closed the road,” he said.
