The drivers of two vehicles involved in a crash at the Hockerill crossroads in Bishop's Stortford on Friday evening (Nov 22) avoided injury.

Police were called just before 8.25pm to a report of a damage-only collision at the junction of Dunmow Road, London Road, Stansted Road and Hockerill Street.

A silver Land Rover Discovery and a white Citroen Berlingo van were involved.

A spokeswoman for Hertfordshire Constabulary said: "It is believed there were no injuries. Both parties exchanged details at the scene." There was no indication in the police statement of any action being taken against either motorist.

Officers attended to assist with recovery of the Discovery and this was dealt with by 9.30pm.

Abdul Gaffar, who owns the Ashoka Indian takeaway at the junction, posted on Facebook: "We have witnessed accidents there every other week. Council have been notified in the past but still nothing is being done!"

It sparked a debate about the issue of motorists jumping red lights at the junction.

Louise Bennett said: "I was waiting to turn right there yesterday [Thursday] and three oncoming cars jumped the red light, leaving me sat in the middle of the junction." Harry Brunt added: "I walk or cycle over the crossroads every day and see many cars jumping red."
