Anderson Roofing: a ‘Trusted Tradesman’ driver on a mobile phone

I spotted an Anderson Roofing vehicle being driven south on Hoe Street E17 (A112), the male driver steering with one hand while chatting on a handheld mobile phone. Yesterday, 10.42 am.

I couldn’t be bothered to chase after the driver to get the number as I was going in the other direction. It wasn’t a standard white van, more a van with a little cherry picker attachment on top. Anderson Roofing boast that they belong to the Trusted Tradesmen scheme, whatever that may be. Plainly it doesn’t encompass obeying road traffic law.
