Morrisons delivery truck completely stuck after trying to drive up river
Homeowners likely saw their grocery deliveries not turn up yesterday after a Morrisons delivery driver decided to take his truck up a a section of river – getting stuck in the process. The submerged large vehicle became stuck after attempting to wade through the large amount of water at the ford, likely swollen due to recent storms. It has reportedly had two rescue attempts fail already, with recovery vehicles twice forced to turn back.
It remained stranded overnight before being recovered at around midday today.

Passersby were shocked by the HGV taking up the ford in Wookey, Somerset, which is believed to be one of the largest fords in the country. One nearby resident Tucker Jenkins said stranded vehicles were a common occurrence on that part of the river, near Knowle Lane. “There is a sign telling people not to drive up it but that has been run over.
People ignored it beforehand anyway,” he said.

“I have got about five cars stranded in the ford and people being rescued on my phone. “It is really foolish. Who in their right mind would drive on this?
They are off their heads.”
