This could have been a disaster..............

A six-tonne dumper truck filled with soil rolled down a hill before crashing into a garden wall in Llandudno. St Margarets Drive, off Nant-y-Gamar Road, was partially blocked on Thursday evening after the unmanned truck rolled down a hill and hit the local resident's wall.

The garden wall was left damaged following the incident, with the area around the truck coned off last night. The vehicle was carrying soil at the time of the incident.

Following the incident, police and operatives of the vehicle attended the scene but were unable to move the truck, which is believed to have suffered a fault with the hydraulic system.        ref DP
