I would like to know how many RTCs have occurred on the A35 at the junction with Long Bredy Hut Lane, long Bredy/Litton Cheney, between January 1st 2010 and January 20th 2020. That is reportable RTCs involving injury of any category. I would also like included RTCs to which the police have attended but have not been allocated an RTC number and any incidents which have been recorded only as an incident or Niche log. The incidents I am concerned with are collisions with traffic island and road signs at the location.
