A BROKEN-down vehicle with a difference is causing delays one a busy Herefordshire roundabout.

The military-type vehicle, which is towing a trailer, appears to have broken down on the Labels roundabout on the outskirts of Ross-on-Wye.

Hereford Times:

The roundabout is on the busy A40, and traffic is building in the area, according to Hereford Times reporter Bridie Adams.

The vehicle is believed to be a Pinzgauer, a family of high-mobility all-terrain four-wheel drive and six-wheel drive military utility vehicles.


The trucks are in military use across the world.

Hereford Times:

But it does not appear that the delays will last for long, with a rescue operation already underway. 

A Land Rover is on scene and appears to be being hooked up to the vehicle, which has stopped at the Gloucester exit from the roundabout.
