A massive B&Q lorry caused chaos in the small village of Pentewan in Cornwall last week as it became wedged in a narrow bend in the road.
The driver, who is thought to have been using a paper map for directions rather than satellite navigation equipment, got stuck at around 4.40pm on Thursday. The lorry was wedged for almost 18 hours before it was finally towed away at around 10am the following morning.
Although the incident caused “major traffic delays and chaos” in the small town, the local villagers took it in their stride, bringing the driver cups of tea as council contractors tried to find a solution.
The driver, who was heading to Swindon, Wiltshire, reportedly took a wrong turn which lead to his unfortunate predicament. The lorry was eventually towed back up the hill.
A B&Q spokeperson said, “We're sorry for the inconvenience caused to villagers in Pentewan, caused by one of our lorries taking a wrong turn; we're pleased it has now been moved."
