We managed to get hold of the vehicle owner who had broken down, headed home and planned to return to collect the vehicle tomorrow. The vehicle had been left on a dark road near a blind bend and in the centre of the carriageway with no hazard lights displayed - we arranged for recovery to remove the vehicle and make the road safe once again.

"We understand breakdowns happen, but a polite reminder that if your vehicle is left in a position which presents a danger to other road users we will not hesitate to recover the vehicle and the owner will be liable for all costs incurred."
