A car was left teetering on a cliff edge after the driver followed sat nav directions down a Pennine footpath. Robert Jones continued to follow the instructions when they told him the narrow, steep path he was driving on in Todmorden, West Yorkshire, was a road.
Mr Jones, from Doncaster, South Yorkshire, only stopped when his BMW hit a fence above Gauxholme railway bridge on Sunday morning. Police have charged Mr Jones with driving without due care and attention.
The 43-year-old, who works as a driver, said he relied on his sat nav for his job. He described Sunday’s incident, during a visit to friends in Todmorden, as “a nightmare”. A West Yorkshire Police spokesman said: “Officers received a call at 11.18am on Sunday March 22 reporting that a BMW was hanging off the edge of a cliff off Bacup Road.
“The driver was a 43-year-old man from Doncaster. He has been summonsed to court for driving without due care and attention.”
The driver may face prosecution for careless driving. Watch
