Seems like I wasn't the only one to wonder why it took so long!!!
Brynle Williams, the Conservative AM for North Wales, who led the national fuel protests in 2000, said, “It is time the police got their act together. We are seeing this sort of thing every time there is an accident.
“Of course it is a great tragedy when someone loses a life but it does not take 11 hours to gather evidence and take photographs.
“This sort of incident warrants strong comment because otherwise nothing will get done about it. We need to be very critical of the time police are taking to handle accidents all over Wales.
“They seem to take joy in inconveniencing the public.
“If the police cannot conduct themselves in a better way than this then we should be looking for better police officers. The Welsh police force is adequately serviced so there can be no excuse.”
Former traffic police officer Adrian Llewelyn Jones was stranded for more than three hours en route to a meeting in Swindon.
“I spoke to Gwent Police and they told me the delay was due to them following strict protocol,” he said. “If that is the case then serious questions have to be asked about how police deal with these sort of things.
