The car seemed to have done what the safety pack should do. Although the brakes weren't on, it slammed on the brakes to stop the car being shunted into the one in front, so it prevented damage to the front and the car in front. Now we will see if Volvo insurance is as good as Aviva. When I had a small bump, they sorted it , got me a courtesy car, and mine fixed and back to me in a week. My brother had a six week argument with his insurer and the garage over damage to his work van when a car pulled out of a side road in front of him. They are still arguing over loss of earnings.
I haven't seen any hedgepigs for ages. The last one was a baby trying to hide under a pallet. One of the neighbours has a bengal cat, a very inquisitive hunter. Apparently he keeps making them presents of mice and toads, presumably mostly coming from my garden.
