Neighbours came out of their homes to assist the lorry driver, who told them he had been en route to Wroxham.

It comes just a month after a bus became stuck on the same stretch of road due to "poorly parked cars".

A Gertrude Road resident, who asked not to be named, said six neighbours, including one fluent in French, needed to help the driver pass the bend and get on his way.

She said the bus had become stuck last month because of an "obstruction" with a car parked close to their house.

"It has never happened before that since we have lived here," she added. "It took nearly two hours and the help of around five men and a French speaking neighbour to get him down the road safely."

She added the lorry was "never going to make it around that bend".
