A Barnehurst supermarket customer ended up with a £1,900 bill after accidentally driving into a metal post he says shouldn’t be there.But Colin is one of today’s modern men – he’s not embarrassed at his evident failure to look where he was going, oh, dear me, no. He’s concerned for the laydeez…
Colin, who used to run a fish stall at Swanley market, claims the three foot removable post should be got rid of as it is covered in multi-coloured paint stains from where other drivers have come a cropper.
He said: “There are more cars that have hit it and it must have cost people a fortune. “Other people might be embarrassed – young ladies who have gone away having sustained all this damage but don’t want a row.
“If I raise it maybe these people will come forward.”And maybe everyone will point and laugh at you & post ‘Specsavers’ leaflets through your door.
