I am a very lucky man

We were driving back from Dover yesterday afternoon, when our car started veering from one side of the motorway to the other. Dad steered us towards the central reservation, where we spun round on a grassy verge and hit the crash barrier side-on. There was a loud knock, a large jolt, and we were still. It turned out we’d blown a tyre on the road.

Fortunately, everyone in the car was OK. We were calling the emergency services, when some people from the Highways Agency appeared and towed our car to the hard shoulder. They could not have been nicer – they stayed and chatted with us while we waited for a breakdown service to come and take us back to Cambridge. In addition to the burst tyre, the suspension was gone, so the car came back on the back of a flat-bed truck. An odd end to the holiday. Personally though, I’m still very very glad my family and I ended up safe and unharmed. Living to blog the tale, as it were.
