  • This continues to be an issue. The junction is dangerous to turn into from Sidegate Lane. Complete lack of visibility (no line of sight whatsoever) looking down Irthlingborough Road towards Stanton Cross Development. It appears from the debris left by the side of the road that someone may have already had the nose of their car knocked off. This is a serious accident waiting to happen.
