A car was left in a ditch and a second was blocking the road after a smash at a junction that neighbours are describing as ‘very dangerous’.

Nobody was injured after the collision between a red Fiat Punto and blue Land Rover Freelander at the place where Gravel Path meets The Common in Berkhamsted.

Police were called at about 10.15am on Friday, and had cleared the area by just after 11.30am.

Neighbours have long campaigned for a new 20mph limit to be introduced in Gravel Path.

They say speeding is a problem in the road – but there is no evidence to suggest that speeding was to blame for Friday’s accident.
