TRACTOR LEAKS HYDRAULIC FLUID IN CARISBROOKE HIGH STREET


Delays built up in Carisbrooke earlier this afternoon (Saturday) when a tractor leaked hydraulic fluid over the carriageway and broke down outside a busy pub.

Queues were back to the Wellington Road roundabout after the agricultural vehicle developed a fault and came to a stop outside the Eight Bells, blocking one side of the road.

Engineers were quickly on scene and worked to clear the spill, as well as getting the tractor on its way.

Strange comment. What did you expect tractor to run on “coal”? Agricultural vehicles can legally use red diesel. Also ANY vehicle can and do break down at times. You can’t choose where. Also the way people drive at the moment I’d feel safer in a tractor !!
