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.
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.
