A DRUNKEN man fell asleep on the side of the A19.
Police and paramedics were called to the verge of the northbound carriageway of the A19, near the A183 turn-off, on Saturday morning after receiving several calls from concerned motorists who passed him.
One said: “We weren’t sure if he was asleep or had been hit by a car.
“His head was literally inches from the road. If he’d have moved an inch it could have been deadly.”
