The most notable thing about this story is that the pair come from Hemel Hempstead. The picture below tells you all you need to know about the town:

Hemel is a "new town", built from scratch last century to house the overflow from overcrowded London. All new towns have a number of features in common

1) A thriving industry in roundabout manufacture
2) A bloody great (but usually very ugly) shopping mall
3) Pedestrian underpasses that look like WWII bunkers and smell of tramp
4) No personality and bugger all to do

It's no wonder the accident happened. These two probably thought risking third degree burns was preferable to another evening in Hemel bloody Hempstead....
