Sat-nav problems tackled at government summit

The problems caused when lorry and car drivers are misdirected by out-of-date directions from their sat-navs are to be tackled at a government summit.

Local Transport Minister Norman Baker will host the talks in March to ensure everything possible is done to get the right vehicles on the right roads.

The AA's Edmund King said that although there were some horror stories about sat-nav blunders, drivers needed to use "common sense" rather than putting all the blame on technology.
