The driver apparently missed a turning into an industrial estate off Long Road, near South Devon College.

He carried on down the road which turns into a narrow lane and got stuck near the junction with Lower Yalberton Road. The section of road has a weight restriction to ban heavy goods vehicles.

Police attended the scene on Wednesday lunchtime.

Two local HGV drivers managed to free the vehicle and turn it round.
