Just a few images taken here today, sorry about the focus my daughter took control of the camera. Its snowed all day and caused havoc on the local roads. We came across an ambulance stuck behind many vehicles struggling for traction, I stopped and offered to assist by towing stuck vehicles to clear their route it took a while but we got there.









Thanks

Anthony

Thanks Martin, the truck in the third image was the vehicle stopping the Ambulance and other vehicles from passing through once I got around the truck via the grass verge I towed him out the way making the route clear for the Ambulance. Yep Mark Iím in front itís a great work horse and does well in these conditions and if I can help people out I will always stop to assist. 

Thanks

Gulp! I hope that the Tesco delivery I'm expecting later on today fares better!
