Isle of Sheppy crossing to Kent this morning. Fog creates chaos.

I didn't realise that there were 100 cars on the Isle of Sheppey, so amazing that they all decided to run into each other at 7:15 this morning!

But seriously, looks like drivers behaving like lunatics again - driving too fast with no lights (never mind fog lights) despite weather forecast last night which predicted - yep, thick fog in the south east. No doubt many sensible drivers were caught up in the crashes, being hit from behind when they had slowed down and stopped; innocent victims of idiot drivers.

It made the morning news here. It only takes one lunatic to cause a chain reaction like this. BTW, that look like a Tig on the transporter truck. First one on top.

There is a lot of industrial activity on the old sheep fanciers island. A major amount of car imports and exports through what was the naval dockyard including VW's. Also the holiday trade at Minster and Leysdown is probably still generating recreational traffic . Thank God nobody was killed .

 

(Sheppey enjoys the dubious distinction of being the only part of mainland Britain to be lost to a foreign power since William the Conqueror's invasion in 1066. This was in June 1667, when a Dutch fleet sailing up the Thames Estuary for the Medway captured the fort at Sheerness. The fort at the time was incomplete and the garrison underfed and unpaid, so resistance to the heavily armed Dutch Navy was hardly enthusiastic. Samuel Pepys, then secretary of the Navy Board, described Sheerness as lost "after two or three hours' dispute". The Dutch quickly overran and occupied the whole island for several days before withdrawing. Prior to leaving, the Dutch took supplies, ammunition and guns, then burned everything that was combustible.)
