The BBC reports how workmen painting white lines stopped and continued their operation after coming across a dead badger in the road.
"Council contractor Amey said the staff from sub-contractor Bellstan were not "licensed or trained" to remove road kill."
FFS! "licensed or trained" - what to use a shovel/black bag or 'shovel/ditch'? There may be no extra cost to the council, but there sure as hell will be to the contractor for the extra time, fuel etc to make a return trip - and that is without any 'cost' to road users whilst they experience delays caused no doubt by the road being 'coned-off' to allow the white-lining to be completed.
What happened to commonsense?
