Ice claims three bikers at busy Plymouth roundabout
Three bikers fell in the space of a few minutes at the Tesco roundabout at Woolwell in Plymouth during this morning's rush hour.
David Miller was called to the scene by his son Ian, who was the first to go down at 6.55am.
Mr Miller said he believed the gritters had not been out, but The Herald has not been able to check with the council yet.
Ian Miller's fall caused "a couple of hundred pounds" of damage to his bike.

The Millers flagged down riders approaching the roundabout to avert more accidents until the police arrived.
Mr Miller Snr said the pavements were also dangerously icy.
