Title

Car in gully on Mannings Hill Road

Description

"Well...at least one motorist seems to have got around current water restrictions against washing cars. And he's plunged into the idea on all fours, so to speak - (four wheels, that is).
It's rather like going to sea on a good thing. And the sea is where he might very well have ended up when heavy early morning rains flooded this gully and threatened to take him sailing for the holiday. It seems our man had missed a turn the night before and overshot the gully on Mannings Hill Road. We wouldn't say he was sleeping at the wheel. But never mind, most of us have awakened from even wetter dreams."
