On the inside(overtaking lane) just before the service station I encountered a massive puddle at 9:07 this morning that caused my car to go into a massive aquaplane induced slide. I was able to recover my car's attitude but it could have been a massive accident and even though everyone was driving at reduced speeds because of the heavy rain, it took me by surprise and for approximately 70 metres my vehicle was travelling at 45 degrees to the right of the true direction of travel. This occurred around 9:05 this morning on the 8/5/21 at about 60mph due to the heavy rain.
