A SKIP lorry driver said he was forced off the road by another vehicle veering into his path.

“The driver reported that he was reacting to an oncoming vehicle veering into his path,” the force said in an appeal.

“We’re appealing for any witnesses to the incident or anyone who may have dash cam footage from that area around that time that could assist officers with their enquiries.”
