A farm contractor had laid the freshly rolled bale of hay against a fence in a field at the top of a slope  above the road.  The cylindrical bale rolled over the fence and down the steep slope onto the road below where Mr Edwards had the misfortune to be driving his van. 

The Inquest into the accident has now taken place and the Coroner has recommended that the Health & Safety Executive (HSE) revise their guidelines to warn farmers of the hazards of baling on sloping ground, so as to avoid similar tragedies in the future.
