Lets hope just trapped and not badly hurt.

Maybe cut speed limits until the hospital can cope when CV cases ease again.

Anyone breaking such looses car, such tough action might stop all but the car joy rider thieves, and thus limit accident admissions to our tiny, but full hospital.

Unpopular, sure, but all effective action always will be.

Let’s hope any innocents in this are not badly hurt.

Or an essential worker on their way home from a grueling long shift at a key place of work.

Have some compassion and pull your arrogant head out of your backside.

Still working.

Sometimes when I read the comments on here I wonder what sort of age and intellect you people are. It is really quite embarassing and worrying. Where does it state speeding was involved? What sort of person thinks it’s humour (or otherwise) to make a comment a car is now a convertible after someone has had to be cut out of a vehicle. What a truly sick and ‘sad’ lot you all are!! Let’s hope it never happens to you….disgusting!!
