Keith Watts, 51, of Peterborough, was having a drink in the Lattice House on Chapel Street on Thursday when the incident happened.

He said he believed it was around 5.10pm when he heard a 'screeching' noise.

'I looked up and I could see this lorry, I thought from the angle of it, it must have hit the building.

'A few of us looked out and saw the wheels were suspended in the air.'

Mr Watts added: 'I felt a bit bemused by it and felt sorry for the driver. It was a real shock, you don't expect to see it.'

The Lattice House is woned by JD Wetherspoon and was put up for sale last year. It is a Grade II-listed building which became an inn in 1714.
