One local resident, close to where the accident happened, said: “This is the fourth time the road has been closed in as many days. The road has been repeatedly closed since Saturday.

“The helicopter came in this morning for an old woman who was hit by a car as she was cycling. It was spectacular seeing it land. It blew my fence down as it was hovering above the house.”
