The MF Tyler lorry got stuck at about 8.30am today as the driver was travelling along Bedford Street and attempted to turn into Opie Street.

The driver did not want to talk about what happened, but it is understood he was following a Sat Nav.

Police and council officers were called to the scene to help free the vehicle, and Norwich City Council instructed its contractor Kier to remove and then replace the bollards.

The lorry was freed by about 10am this morning.

Rory Hill, manager of the Book Hive, on London Street, said: “The lorry was here when I came to work this morning.

“All sorts of nonsense happens here. The problem is that the whole street [London Street] is pedestrianised and so they have to give access for deliveries via Bedford Street.

“It’s just one of those problems because so many people need deliveries on Bedford Street. I don’t know what the solution is really.”

Chris Goodwin, who works for nearby Shears Hair Design, said: “It’s the first time I’ve seen a lorry stuck there. I think it got stuck just after 8.30am.”

MF Tyler is based in Stoke on Trent, in Staffordshire, and the road haulage and transport business has been running for more than 30 years.
