    Apologies if I held you up this morning, some kindly left a ratchet strap on the M1 this morning just past junction 31 south bound. Shredded the offside front tyre!!!

    Yeah I'm fine, no damage to the wheel thank god!! Didn't even have time to move over I hit it then the tyre pressure monitor plummeted!! It could have been worse atleast it's the tyre and not through the windscreen!

    Yep those smart motorways, really gives you a lot of protection against juggernauts!
    Have you got a spare tyre or on of those pumps in the boot they seem to fit instead?
    I thaught that was an early photograph entery for August POTM
    As long as you are safe and well that's all that matters .
