Austrian Truck Trapped in The Square
On 5th March 2012 there was great excitment in The Square when an Austrian lorry owned by LKW Augustine became trapped by parked cars. The lorry arrive at about 10.00am and was soon surrounded by cars!

Our correspondent, Carol Douglas, who lives in The Square, was quoted in the News and Star saying, "there was a huge lorry right the way across blocking 10 or 12 cars in. Thank goodness it was a one-off incident".

"It was quite amusing but it wouldn't have been funny if the emergency services had needed access".

By all accounts to took the combined efforts of a number of policemen and Councillor Trevor Allison to wake up the driver (who had retreated into his cab behind closed curtains). Judy Rickerby left a finger scrawled message on the side of the vehicle for the Austrian owners - "PLEASE DO NOT PARK HERE".

The lorry eventually left at about 12.50pm
