  • The area is now extremely slippery with mud carried onto the A43 to the Duddinton turn off. I slid across the junction while riding my motorcycle and a less experienced rider may well have fallen off. The road surface is as slippery as ice! Depositing mud on the road is illegal as defined in the Highways Act. Immediate action needs to be taken before someone is injured or killed.
