A wheel... But No Way

Gibraltar was plunged into midday traffic chaos yesterday after the axle broke on a Restsso delivery van in Secretary’s Lane, blocking the road to other vehicles.

Police diverted cars down a pedestrianised stretch of Main Street to try and avoid a jam in the lunchtime rush, but there were still huge tailbacks in some areas of town.

It took over an hour before the van, which was not fully loaded when the incident happened at 12.45pm, was moved and Secretary’s Lane re-opened to traffic.

Passengers on two buses that were trapped behind the Restsso van were forced to alight and find alternative means of reaching their destinations.
