Today started off badly with a crash in the town centre in our hire jeep. the car in front slammed on and unfortunately i was too close behind to avoid a collision.

The police were on the scene within minutes which we found quite surprising considering their general laid back approach to things.

It also turned out that our hire car was failing to display a valid insurance certificate on the windscreen so the police officers decided to take us ‘down town’ to the central station until we could prove that the car was insured. I also had to complete a very indepth statement.

We called the hire company and explained that we were being held at the central station because the car appeared not to be insured.

The company sent a guy over with the valid paperwork and we were released.
