myself...

Entered the centre Reading for only the second time this year by Defender (twice too often)
and got locked into a diversion due to an accident involving a pedestrian in King's Road.

The Police and Emergency Services looked to be doing their best in what was later reported
on the BBC South Today News as a serious incident,

Keep safe everyone... SKIP.

Good one, is that your 15 minuets of fame.

Nasty conditions on the roads!

Delayed for 45 minutes... 3 Seconds of air time Exclamation

Your right about the road conditions... I was there whilst on-route to the Royal Berkshire Hospital,
taking a cyclist who had unfortunately had an ancient very close to where I live (out in the sticks)
and although not badly hurt, he had some head wounds that needed attention, my medical kit only
went so far, A&E did the rest, including a head scan to ensure all was OK. SKIP.

I've spotted myself a few times on Google Street Mapping, that part where the camera car has been out and about taking pictures of everywhere they can get. At the moment I'm in two places at once around Hereford, quite a feat I know but the images are a couple of months apart.
The one below has replaced images of people I know riding their horses along the same stretch of road a couple of years earlier

Hereford is certainly the hotbed for streetview activity!

Here I am making my debut during demolition of 'Bubbles' Car Wash during City Link Road site clearance in 2015. Incidentally JWL - I believe the new City Link Road is where your second photo is taken from?

My bum appears on streetview, as I was caught bending over into the engine bay of my Defender!

You've got it Hank, took a bit of manoeuvring to get the right angle as if you go slightly further along the pointless road it changes to a different camera car on a different day. I just remember seeing the car and thought "I just wonder........"
