A pub in Wrexham has a new feature in its gents’ toilets after a road traffic accident.
Landlady Di Watson told the BBC how she was serving customers at about 9pm on Saturday night at the Gredington arms in Llan y Pwll, when they heard a ‘massive bang’ from the men’s toilets. Upon investigating, they discovered a car embedded in the wall. The young male driver was taken to hospital with a suspected broken wrist.
The accident happened on a bend on the A534 near Sandy Lane at Llan y Pwll. “A car with several people had gone into the wall, flown through the air and embedded itself in the gents’ toilets.
“It’s like something out of a film set, with part of the car sticking out and the front sticking through the wall. I knew exactly what had happened because it’s happened before. Shortly after we took over the pub we had a car crash into it.”
The pub is still open for business as the hole in the toilet wall poses no structural danger. Mrs Watson’s husband, landlord Rod Watson, said customers had been in the toilet seconds before the accident and it was fortunate nobody was seriously hurt or even killed.
