Lying B*stards...don't you love them
My father & mother in law run their fishing supplies business from a quaint oast on a farm in Kent. Its down a quarter mile paved narrow farm lane.
On Monday they were driving down it and stopped as there was a large recovery wagon with a building supplies lorry on it that began reversing towards them coming from the farm. They tooted, and tried to reverse, but the recovery wagon driver either had not seen or looked and my 75 year old father in law could not get away fast enough going backwards.
Result.. The rear of the wagon smashes into front of his S reg Mazda Xedos 6 doing a lot of damage.
The Driver leaps out and says immediately "You just drove into the back of me!!"
Luckily there are two witnesses who saw the whole thing and are prepared to say otherwise..
Interestingly even though its S reg, and has over 80,000 on the clock, and the estimated repair cost is about £3,500. The insurers have opted to repair rather than write off. Father in law has had it from new and really likes it, so he's happy as long as its fixed properly.
Bloody cheek though!
