I'm sure the funeral wasn't the prime cause of the traffic jams - Taunton itself is just a nightmare to get around these days. Turn the traffic lights off I say!

With no disrespect to the deceased and their family, this must have been a big funeral for someone well known or very high up in Taunton's affairs, to have closed Hammet Street and cause gridlock of traffic.
