Another victim has been claimed by the structure which had supported the Fishergate Bollard.Advertisement
A car struck the plinth’s base at the junction of Corporation Street and Fishergate.
It triggered an oil leak across the road and saw sand put down during Saturday (9 March).
One of the cones, which have been put in place where the bollard used to stand, was moved into the centre of the road by the impact.
The Bollard has not been put back into place since it made a return, briefly, in 2018.
But it was quickly struck again by a motorist and sent rolling down Fishergate Hill.
