Why people leave their cars parked in places like that when they know a storm is coming and must have previous experience of flooding in those areas. Insurance should be voided as they have deliberately left it in danger. Stupid twats like that are pushing up everyone elses insurance by not taking basic precautions to protect their cars.


I would rather lose by a mile because i built my own car, than win by an inch because someone else built it for me.

I've been driving around today with the roof down enjoying the sun. Mad how we had lovely weather here yet only a few hundred miles away there's a big storm wrecking the joint.

The sea has penetrated the ground below and washed it out from below the road.
