Bus Stop but a lorry didn’t

There is an expression “You don’t miss something until it’s gone”, but how many residents of North Ockendon have noticed that the bus stop for the 370 route towards Lakeside at the top of Church Lane has gone missing. It is not actually missing, but spread liberally in the hedgerow. It appears that the twisting, WINDING nature of the road has claimed another victim. The evidence at the scene suggest that a lorry negotiated the bend in the road just after the kennels the direction towards Upminster too fast, lost control and hit the bus stop. It is not clear when exactly this happened but the weekend of the 5th and 6th April seem most likely. Does anyone have any more details? The bus stop on the other side of the road, was originally¬† nearer the junction of Church lane but apparently a fatal accident of a similar nature to this lead to it being moved. Recent events suggest not far enough though.
