Seven-seat version of Fiat 500L revealed with new ‘Multi Purpose Wagon’
This is Britain's best roundabout
As road users, roundabouts are an integral part of our daily lives but do you ever take the time to step back from the hustle and bustle, draw a deep breath and bask in the warm glow of a really great roundabout?
No, we thought not. But one man has made roundabout appreciation his life's work. Kevin Beresford is the president of the UK Roundabout Appreciation Society (UKRAS) and he certainly knows a thing or three about circular gyratory intersections.
Kevin's 'Best of British Roundabouts' calendars have become a huge hit around the world and now the long-awaited 2013 edition is out, featuring what he believes is the finest roundabout on these fair isles. "I have to admit I've travelled from John O'Groats to Land's End in my search for the perfect, holy grail gyratory and now I think I've found it in the city of York." Kevin explains.
At the centre of 'Britain's best roundabout' is the Grade II-listed Holgate Windmill, a fully restored 16th-century working mill. We have to agree, it's quite a roundabout but the other entries in the UKRAS best roundabouts calendar aren't too shabby either.

The steel "tulips" on the Burleys roundabout in Leicester are actually supposed to be Lotus flowers. And no, I can't tell the difference either.
