Tockington is a village in South Gloucestershire. Historically the village developed around farming based mainly on the rearing of cattle on the fertile flood plains.
Gloucestershire, just like the rest of the country, has its fair share of road traffic accidents. They happen all over the UK every day, involving motorbikes, cars, vans, lorries, heavy goods vehicles and anything else you can think of. With every accident there is an innocent and a guilty party, even if the guilty party is a local authority for not repairing the pothole that threw the biker of his motorbike.

The main ones are:
