Driver Sunbathes Next To His Van In Middle Of Motorway
Traffic on the M27 in Hampshire was brought grinding to a halt at junction 1 near Cadnam this afternoon after a man decided to sunbathe next to his broken-down van.
Presumably the sun had gone to the chap’s head, because for some reason he thought it was OK to soak up its rays on the westbound carriageway of the motorway.

Meanwhile, Hampshire Constabulary’s Roads Policing Unit had this sage advice:
If you break down on the motorway please get yourself to a safe place and don't lie next to your vehicle sunbathing!!! Advice given #21983— Hants Roads Policing (@HantsPolRoads) August 21, 2015
The lanes were eventually reopened, but there were still lengthy delays as a result of the incident.
