Midsomer Norton High Street brought to standstill by trapped lorry
Midsomer Norton High Street was brought to a standstill at lunchtime on Wednesday when a lorry trying to get past parked cars slipped off the pavement trapping part of its tail bar under the wheel arch of a car.
The lorry had been making a regular delivery to a pet shop in the narrow High Street and had mounted the kerb to drive away when the wheels slipped off the damp surface
The high street came to a standstill as police carefully manoeuvred the Audi 4x4 vehicle forward to release the bar and free the lorry. Traffic was diverted while the incident was cleared.
