Council workers lucky escape as tractor collapses

An Oldham council parks employee escaped without injury yesterday when a small tractor used for mowing grass suddenly lost its front wheels whilst turning onto a street.

The accident happened at 1.00 pm in Greenfield, Saddleworth whilst cleaning up after the annual ‘Yanks’ military show.

The driver who did not want to be named said he had a lucky escape and that the tractor was quite old he thought the front steering rods had given way.

The mower was taken from the scene on a low loader.

A Council spokesman told GPSJ: After looking into this breakdown and after contacting the workshops I can confirm the condition of the mini tractor is down to wear and tear after 15 yrs service it is not economical to repair.
