    No it was on the Lydney side of Blakeney, over the hill on the first bend just after the little bit of dual carriageway by the Viney Hill turning. 2 cars quite badly smashed but thankfully didnt look like they rolled. Impossible to tell what had happened but there was a lot of mud on the road and the roads are slippery enough as it is.
