The scene this morning.

Nick Edmunds, who owns Bella Emporio tattoo studio on the corner of Bowling Green Road said: “It’s terrible, we have seen so many near misses in the last couple of days.

“The road rage out there is terrible even when the lights are working. Peak times is just a mess out there.”

In a video filmed by Nick from his tattoo studio, cars can be seen hesitating before making their turns across the busy junction.

Writing on Facebook, Nick said: “I hear nothing by car horns blaring. I’ve witnessed so many near accidents. How someone hasn’t been involved in a horrible RTA yet I’ll never understand.

“The pedestrian crossing lights are all out and pedestrians are running as fast as they can to get over the roads, this is a horrible accident waiting to happen.

“Our work colleague had to help a man in a wheelchair over the road this morning as he was too scared to go.”

Roads are the responsibility of Northamptonshire County Council, who have been asked for comment.
