DISASTER was averted as traffic slowed down in Popley after a person had thrown glass into oncoming traffic.

Sources told the Gazette that a person had drunkenly left the Dragonfly Pub, in Carpenters Down around 4.45pm today, and proceeded to throw glass into the road.

Staff from the pub were seen slowing down traffic while clearing debris from the road.
