A LANDLORD is now counting the cost of another crash happening outside his pub near Hereford.

A blue Ford Fiesta ploughed into a wall at the Golden Cross Inn at Sutton Nicholas after it crashed with a lorry.

John Murray, who runs the pub, said that it is not the first time it has happened.


"This is the first time it's happened since Covid, but prior to that, I've had incidents where a car and a Land Rover have ended upside down," he said.  

"It has been a cause for concern for about the last 20 years, although since Balfour Beatty have done what they've done, this is the first incident since then. 

"You do see courier vans on a regular basis just go over the junction and they live off Sat Navs."
