Staff at the Carsley Group's BP North Muskham site on the A1 in Nottinghamshire suffered a very near miss/freak incident last month.

The full story only emerged when they were trying to find out why there was a huge hole through the BP logo at the top of the site's price pole.

After reviewing CCTV footage, they discovered that a vehicle's tyre separated itself and bounced along the A1 and went straight through the pole sign. Area manager James Kemp said: "Luckily nobody was injured."
