Published:  02 December, 2011

A plumber who who crashed his van into the back of a parked Land Rover had not cleared his windscreen of ice - because he was late for court.

Judge Merfyn Hughes QC told the defendant the smash happened near Bala in broad daylight. "The reason was you were driving with a windscreen covered entirely with frost and quite unable to see the quite obvious presence of the Land Rover. Your vehicle itself was in a totally unroadworthy condition.”
