Vehicles damaged in incident on the A35 at Kilmington

Police are keen to identify the driver of a vehicle which scattered several lengths of scaffolding on the A35, near Kilmington.

The accident happened on the monring of Friday, January 8, at around 7.15am.

A Devon and Cornwall Police spokesperson said: “The scaffolding, which is believed to have dropped off an insecure load, has caused damage to several vehicles.

“Luckily nobody was injured that morning, although it could easily have been much worse.

“We are calling for either witnesses to the incident or the driver to come forward and speak to us.”

The scaffolding poles have colour coded paint markings on them and are six feet long.

Police officers attended the scene shortly after the incident to remove the debris from the road.

Now they are anxious to hear from any witnesses who may be able to identify the lorry that lost the poles.

Witnesses are asked to call officers on 101 or email them at 101@devonandcornwall.pnn.police.uk , quoting the log reference 111 of 08/01/16.
