10 road collisions on Saturday

Police are warning drivers to not lose focus in the nice weather – following 10 road collisions during Saturday daytime.

Thankfully, there were only minor injuries sustained, but officers are warning islanders still to drive with care now the sun is out.

Acting Inspector Dave Turnbull said: “It is incredibly unusual for us to get so many collisions in such a short space of time and all we can assume is that people were a little bit more relaxed than normal and did not take their usual care.
