We moored on the Polesworth visitor moorings and wandered into the village in search of a copy of the latest Canal Boat magazine which features our Caxton!
En route to the village we were passed by £15k worth of BMW trike that clipped the kerb and went skywards, landing on top of some concrete posts and rolling over on top of the unfortunate rider. I hared off across the roundabout, with Joe on my heels, to get to the poor guy who was conscious and just beginning to drag himself from under the wreckage of his machine. We called an ambulance and his wife to let her know what had happened, then Joe got the local garage to recover the man's trike before leaving a name and number with the responding Police officers. I hope that the gent is OK, I think he will be though he appeared pretty shocked and shaken by his experience.
