There was a huge hole in the tarmac in the middle of the carriageway, it had to be closed off. I wouldn't fancy hitting that at any speed.

It's not this incident that was a problem, its the whole M4 that is falling apart under the sheer weight of traffic, this is strangling the life out of the Welsh economy and it is no coincidence that businesses are setting up on the english side of the bridge, the Welsh economy is dying due to the Bridge tolls and the M4 around Newport.
Scrap the VAT on tolls, then scrap the tolls.
