Gloucester’s Victorian Docks were transformed in August 2014 due to the fact that the film “Alice through the Looking Glass” was about to be shot there. Locals went to the Docks to see the five tall ships that had docked at the harbour, perhaps hoping to catch a glimpse of Johnny Depp, Helena Bonham-Carter or Anne Hathaway who were starring in it. There are many other sights to see in this ancient city, such as Robert Raikes’ house, which is a Tudor house open to the public, and the ruins of Saint Oswald’s Priory as well as the cathedral. The city of Gloucester began its existence in Roman times but it is now very much in the 21st century, although it contains many buildings which reflect its rich history.
Road traffic accidents in Gloucester
You may remember the old nursery rhyme:
“Doctor Foster went to Gloucester in a shower of rain;
He stepped in a puddle right up to his middle and never went there again.’
The roads are in a much better condition now in the city, but road traffic accidents in Gloucester still occur.
If you have been injured in one of these road traffic accidents in Gloucester, you may be entitled to make a personal injury compensation claim if you can prove that the accident was not your fault but the fault of someone else.
If you were involved in one of these road traffic accidents in Gloucester, you probably had medical treatment very shortly after the accident, which is good, as you need your medical report if you are to make a claim for your injuries. You should also have informed the police of the accident within twenty-four hours of its occurrence. If anyone is injured in a road traffic accident, it is best to call the police to the scene immediately. They will ask for witnesses and write a report which you will need if you are to file a claim.
