A 40 ton articulated truck was stuck in Luxted Road this morning. It was trying to get to Essex!!! It came to a halt when travelling towards the village and half way along Luxted Road as the driver was concerned about the overhead power cables. The driver reversed along the road until he came to Bird House Lane and then became stuck.
The police were called and the driver eventually turned the truck round and left via the other end of Luxted Road and Single Street. Unfortunately, when he travelled along Jail Lane he took down the overhead power cables outside the Old Jail Public House. The Fire Brigade and Police were called and the road was closed again.
The driver said he was following his Sat Nav!
