'Idiot' van driver's actions on A1 crossover near Grantham caught on camera




A reader has captured on camera the moments a van could have caused a serious accident on the A1.

The driver of this white Ford Transit van, branded an "idiot" by the disbelieving snapper, pulled over the southbound carriageway from Great Ponton to turn right – and left a trailer sticking out into the carriageway.

The photograph, taken on Friday at around 1.35pm, is not the first such dangerous manoeuvre captured on the Great Ponton crossover.
