Tracy Batt, who lives at the top of Thunder Hill in Martham, near Great Yarmouth, said a neighbour saw the DPD van take a wrong turning into a muddy field near Sandy Lane, known locally as the “Wongs”.

“It got stuck in the mud but couldn’t reverse - so just kept going”, Ms Batt said.

“We’ve lived here for eight years and I’ve never seen anything like that.

“People walk their dogs through it but there’s no vehicle access apart from tractors. It’s just farm land.

“I didn’t speak to the driver personally so I’m not exactly sure what happened. All I know is he tried off-road driving in the wrong vehicle the wrong way.”

She added: “I never actually got my parcel in the end.”
