The Shortlands war memorial, at Kingswood road,was in pieces, literally, following a crash and a car driving right through it.
Police and fire brigade attended the scene. The police commented that a 20 yr old female was taken to hospital with non life threatening injuries.
A local, Sammy Selvage, was working working nearby when the crash happened and commented :
"It's a junction which the memorial splits into two sides so they must have launched into it and over."
Were you nearby, did you hear or see anything?
