A 35-year-old woman driver has flattened a set of traffic lights at a major Gloucester junction.

The lights at Bruton Way and London Road were demolished on Wednesday at 11am.

The woman, from Drybrook, lost control of her green Vauxhall Zafira whilst travelling with two young children.

She was taken to hospital with minor injuries.

It is believed to be the second time that the same lights have been brought to the ground.

The incident caused some traffic backlog at the busy area.

One passerby took a video of the scene, which can be viewed here:

    That John Halford has a wonderful sense of humour though. I don't know where this website would be without him.

    @Dr_Hfrrrrr........I would dearly love to challenge you to a few circuits of Brands Hatch but owing to the fact that I don't like to see grown men cry, I will just have to assume that you are even remotely a competent driver.

    Good point Bonzaharris, who in their right mind would walk with a woman driving behind! Their minds are too full of babies, kittens and knitting and suchlike to be able to operate a car safely. Women - Know Your Limits!

    Dr Hfrrrr, I always did like the dodgems, but don't put a man with a red flag in front of me .... I would only run him over !!

    In the light of this and the various other female related car incidents recently, perhaps women should be made to drive bumper cars? Or maybe they should go old skool and make them drive at 5 mph with a man with a red flag walking in front? It'd make the roads a lot safer for the rest of us.
