Slug stops morning traffic in Derry

A slug caused traffic chaos in Londonderry on Wednesday morning at the entrance to the Nelson Drive estate on the A2 Clooney Road.

rafficwatch NI reported that the traffic lights were off at the intersection at 5:21 am and advised motorists to approach cautiously.

After technicians checked the lights, they further reported at 10:55 am that “signals at the entrance to the Nelson Drive estate are working again”.

And it all came down to one culprit. “A slug had gotten into the controller and the circuit board had shorted out,” they said.
