A TESCO truck offered very little help to commuters after becoming wedged in a tiny street and blocking traffic for 15 HOURS.
The driver of the 44-tonne food truck is believed to have attempted to cut a back road in Bristol before his day – and hundreds of others – was put on hold.
Residents in the Montpelier area of the western England city told how the 18-metre monster arrived just before 7am on Thursday
But when the lorry driver made a sharp right onto Brook Road at the corner of Upper Cheltenham Place, he was really pinned down.
One resident said: “I imagine it will be quite a while to move as it was a real head scratcher.”
The incident drove locals around the corner all day as it made driving on the road virtually impossible as traffic built up.
And reports suggest this has been compounded by the temporary closure of Ashley Road through St Pauls to the M32 junction due to ongoing roadworks.
Drivers used this road to get to the M32 but as it is closed it is believed the driver attempted a shortcut.
Local residents also complained that the road the truck driver intended to drive down is often used as a rat by drivers.
But just as hacked local residents thought the saga was coming to a quick end, a tow truck that arrived at the scene struggled to get past parked cars.
And it was only a mammoth 15 HOURS later at around 10 p.m. that the truck finally checked out of the narrow crowd.
The Sun Online has reached out to Tesco for comment.
