damaged pole Aug 2015BT staff will replace a telegraph pole this week after it snapped in half when a driver collided with it early on Saturday morning.

A local man told Police that he misjudged the corner and lost control of his vehicle on the Carn Friars side of the main road around St Mary’s, in the Normandy area.

The wooden pole collapsed and was removed from the roadway, just past the Deep Point turn-off.

The driver then contacted police to report the incident. He was breathalysed and the test was negative.

The police say they won’t be involved any further as the man has passed on his insurance details to the owners of the post.
