As I entered the small playing field from newton Rd on the night of the accident,only the neon sign from B&Q was visible, The building could not be seen it was shrouded in a mass of cotton wool like fog which was following the river. The cps building could not be seen at the lower end of the field only the flashing of an alarm and its sound determined its position. However fireworks could be seen as they rose into the sky,I determined they were from the Taunton Rugby Club.I watched the whole display from a grassy knoll near the children's climbing frames and slide.I was over looking both Shires Garage and The Dialysis centre although I could not see either for the thick white fog.I heard the applause from the rugby ground and turned to walk home, only the top of kiddies climbing frame was visible from less than 10 yards.The fog however was swirling from the top right of the field towards the dialysis centre, it was lowering to ground level and the pathway could not be seen neither my feet as i walked home.I have lived and worked outside on the Quantock and Blackdown hills for more than 50 years but I have never seen this type of fog before.I arrived home to Laxton Road some minutes later,and I heard a very loud Bang from some distance away, it was louder than anything I had heard that night. I had no idea about the motorway accident until later that evening.My sympathies are with all who lost family and loved ones on such a tragic occasion.
