It comes after a man was killed by a tyre that came off a livestock trailer near Somerset last week. Peter Smith, 79, was killed after being struck on the A38 dual carriageway near Heathfield, Newton Abbot, around 10.25am on September 1.

A Mitsubishi L200 was towing a livestock trailer when the trailer lost a wheel which tragically hit Mr Smith who was walking his dog along the pavement. The dog was kept safe at the scene and is now living with Mr Smith’s family. Last month, meanwhile, another man died after being hit by a lorry as he got out of his crashed car on the island of Anglesey in Wales.

The driver had got out of a black Vauxhall Corsa which had collided with roadside furniture junction 3 westbound on the Valley off-slip of the A55.

But moments later he was hit by an HGV truck just before 11pm, reports WalesOnline.
