Lorry snaps pole on Hart Street

A HANGING basket pole was snapped after being hit by a lorry.

The incident happened in Hart Street, Henley, at about 4pm on Monday.

Richard Jackson, a consultant at Jacksons estate agents, was in his office when he witnessed the accident.

He said: “It was a big lorry and the driver was trying to do a three-point turn. He obviously couldn’t see that planter in his rear view mirrors.

“We heard a big crunch and it fell to the pavement.”

The pole hit the window skirting of the former Rules of Beauty salon but fortunately didn’t shatter the window.
