Woman will follow Google Maps into the sea if she has to

A WOMAN following her phone’s satellite navigation has total faith in it regardless of evidence, she has confirmed.

Emma Bradford, 26, has been driving for nearly double her expected journey time and has seen several signs suggesting she is on the wrong side of the country but remains committed regardless.

She said: “I’m not going to give up on Google Maps at the first sign of a cliff edge. I trust it.

“Yes, I’d never realised that Devon was on the way from Manchester to Nottingham, but this is probably some kind of 150-mile rat run to avoid congestion on the motorway. It’s so clever.

“The only other option would be to switch the phone off and try and read the signs like some kind of cave man. That doesn’t bear thinking about.”

Passenger Stephen Malley said: “We’re far too invested now to change course. Emma’s gripping the wheel white-knuckled with grim determination, like the captain at the helm of a sinking ship.

“The only honourable option is to reach the destination Google Maps is sending us to and begin a new life there.”
