HIGHWAYS England has confirmed that the lights on the Black Dam Roundabout were not out at the time of a serious crash last week.

As previously reported, a 70-year-old man was left with life-changing injuries after a crash on the roundabout on Tuesday, June 1 at 8.15am.

Two vehicles were involved in the collision which saw a car overturn, leaving driver Norman Hogg with two bleeds on his brain and a broken shoulder.

There were four crashes on the roundabout during a 48-hour period last week, prompting calls for it to be redesigned because of safety concerns.

Other motorists claimed the traffic lights were out at the busy junction when the accident happened on June 1.

However, Highways England has now confirmed that they were working at the time of the crash.

It has not yet provided a response regarding how long they were out for following the crash.

The family of Mr Hogg are appealing to the public to share dash cam footage to help them understand what caused the accident.
