The Street in Dickleburgh was blocked for nearly an hour and half on Tuesday afternoon after a lorry and a bus got stuck outside The Dickleburgh Crown pub.
Police were called to the scene at 3.30pm after both vehicles got trapped when the Simonds bus tried to pass the lorry which was delivering goods to the pub.
A recovery vehicle from Simonds finally managed to release the vehicles at 4.55pm after having to take precautions to limit damage to the bus and lorry.
Dickleburgh, near Diss, is no stranger to seeing large vehicles block or restrict the main road through the village, with residents reporting damage to their properties.
