Scary moment on the M20. The back tyre blew up but thankfully I had no other damage than the tyre itself.
The only spare tyre I had was a slam tyre so the dilemma was to try to find a garage in UK and take the risk to miss the crossing or to get to France and sort it out over there.
Being only 30 miles from France that was the option chosen. And not far from the channel I've found this garage who was just about to close but the guy took the blown up tyre and changed it on the spot.
Just to finish the journey I run out of petrol a few miles from Chimay. Good job I had 5 litres spare...
