There's mounting pressure for urgent safety measures on the Sheppey bridge in Kent, the scene of a terrifying 100-car pile-up in thick fog. Thirty casualties remain in hospital, eight in a serious condition.

The AA says a small investment in motorway-style matrix boards could have averted the disaster. Damage to vehicles will run into thousands of pounds. Compensation claims for injuries are expected to run into millions of pounds. Fred and Sangeeta linked to Derek Johnson.
