A car was left teetering on a cliff edge after the driver followed sat nav directions down a Pennine footpath.

Robert Jones continued to follow the instructions when they told him the narrow, steep path he was driving on in Todmorden, West Yorkshire, was a road.

Mr Jones, from Doncaster, South Yorkshire, only stopped when his BMW hit a fence above Gauxholme railway bridge on Sunday morning.

Police have charged Mr Jones with driving without due care and attention.

The 43-year-old, who works as a driver, said he relied on his sat nav for his job.

He described Sunday's incident, during a visit to friends in Todmorden, as "a nightmare".

A West Yorkshire Police spokesman said: "Officers received a call at 11.18am on Sunday March 22 reporting that a BMW was hanging off the edge of a cliff off Bacup Road.

"The driver was a 43-year-old man from Doncaster. He has been summonsed to court for driving without due care and attention."


Wonder if it bothered telling him to "perform a u-turn at the next possible opportunity."

Filthy fat drivers. They stole our precious. We summons them!

I don't understand what you're trying to say...

That is an evil navman but he should have had the common sense to not drive off a cliff.

I think the best thing about these things is that they will eventually eliminate women drivers.

I think sat navs are on to something...

A satnav is just there for direction. You still have to employ common sense.


The first time you fire one up it tells you that it's just a guide like a map, you still need to drive with due care and attention, and obey all local road laws.

Where I live (a little in the sticks) it's always telling me I'm on different roads, and, on occasion, inside someones house.

I get that here as well. My mate lives way out, like a 30 minute drive into the hills of Scotland, and occasionally it tells me I'm cutting across a field and should locate a road

I was in Ayr a little while ago. The Satnav said "We can't direct you when your surroundings are stuck in the 19th Century"

John Cleese wouldn't try to kill someone?

Would he?


Mine;s Darth Vader, I'm pretty sure he'd try to kill you.

Probably be force choking you or something. Manipulating a SatNav to erase seems kind of round and about for a Dark Lord of the Sith.
