image for Weather prompts road hazard warning for Wales
Complicit in reaching 130mph on the A55

The current state of the UK weather is hardly news. Each day we are regaled (literally) with more accounts of torrential rain, howling winds and damaged property.

But to research a story that may well have slipped under the radar, The Spoof has been to North Wales; the A55 in particular, somewhere near Bodelwyddan.

Superintendent Rhys Botticelli (pron. Botti-chetchtchthc-lee) of Llanelli (pron. Ll... -get a move on - Ed.) Police is responsible for overseeing the horrendous road conditions.

Superintendent Botticelli was standing under a large umbrella by the side of the road - there was a lull in the rain at that time - simply to protect onlookers every time he spoke his own name.

"Well it's like this, see. Here in Wales we're used to weather. But this week has been so bad that we've had to break out the "Road Hazard Warning".

In contrast to England, which has a network of signs and warnings criss-crossing the country's roads for thousands of miles, Wales has but one.

"What it is, see," continues the Superintendent enthusiastically, "is a red triangle. It goes at the side of the road. Drivers see it and they think, 'Whoops, better check my speed'.

"Of course there are the idiots. We clocked one retard doing 130 along here this morning. I think it was that Goat Rider."

During the three hours The Spoof spent in Wales we saw four accidents, mainly as a result of drivers rubber-necking to see the triangle.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
