Amaze­ment as car goes wrong way on round­about

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Heatwave Dangers - By James Scott

js­cott@thek­m­group.co.uk Mo­torists were left open­mouthed when they spot­ted a red Peu­geot driv­ing the wrong way round the round­about by the Ash­ford De­signer Out­let.

A photo of the hatch­back be­ing driven by an el­derly driver at around 1pm last Fri­day was cir­cu­lated by nu­mer­ous peo­ple on Face­book and Twit­ter.

Driver Lou Evans, who took the pic­ture, said: “I was com­pletely gobsmacked. I was wait­ing to drive out of Asda and saw the car slowly creep­ing around the round­about the wrong way.

“She was crawl­ing at quite a pace so she must have re­alised she had gone wrong.”

The full-time mum, 32, of Beaver Road, added: “Peo­ple were

‘I was com­pletely gobsmacked’

honk­ing their horns. I won­dered if I had time to take a pic­ture and luck­ily my phone was eas­ily to hand on the pas­sen­ger seat so I snapped it.”

De­spite the danger­ous piece of driv­ing, Kent po­lice said it was not some­thing they were in­ves­ti­gat­ing.

A po­lice spokesman said: “As far as we’re aware it has not been re­ported and is not be­ing in­ves­ti­gated.”
