A motorist hoped police would not keep him hanging on the line when he reported an accident - that left his car dangling from a telephone pole.  The blue Ford Fiesta was left suspended nose down from a BT cable, which became tangled around a rear wheel.<br />
<br />
The unnamed driver, 31, told officers he lost of control of the vehicle and careered across a grass verge as he tried to correct it.  But the R-reg hatchback collided with the pole and was thrown into the air, on the A35 in the New Forest National Park, Hants.  SEE OUR COPY FOR DETAILS.<br />
