Traffic Chaos in Newport

Past the lights was a ghost town
The main traffic lights on the A3020, St Georges Way in the centre of Newport were out of action for three hours on Monday morning, right in the middle of rush hour. As the traffic lights cycled endlessly between red, amber and green, the local shop owners and residents were out in force to watch them.
Such was the ensuing chaos, it took the police nearly forty minutes to get to the scene and start getting the traffic moving.

"It was awful," said Gwyneth Goodheart, 29, who runs Pets With Heart on Holyrood Street. "I was sat in stationary traffic for over quarter of an hour, I've never known anything like it. I had chinchillas that needed feeding!"
