    adamcayhall i presume you knew which direction the combine was travelling into the city from,so bearing in mind his size which detailed route should he have taken?

    I've looked through all the photographs and read the text several times, but can find no evidence of the 'chaos' referred to in the headline. 'Experiencing delays' and 'some tailbacks' don't really conjure up images of a total breakdown of order. While I'm sure there was considerable disruption, SMorris seems to prefer pictures of a man sweeping a traffic-free road.

    "The only damage on the combine was the bent wheel and flat tyre." Hmmm, so not only was it not on a low loader and running on highly illegal duty free red diesel at the tax payers expense but to top it all he wasnt even carrying a spare !!!!
