Prime idiot! Amazon driver gets stuck when his sat nav takes him down narrow street in seaside Cornish village

  •  Driver was seen attempting to take his 33-tonne lorry down very narrow road
  •  Incident happened in seaside village of St Agnes on Cornwall’s north coast
  •  Lorry ended up wedged in a tight spot close to two Grade II-listed buildings

An Amazon delivery driver found himself in a tight spot after his satnav directed him to drive his 33-tonne lorry down a very narrow street in Cornwall.

He was driving to St Agnes on the North Coast and almost got wedged between two Grade-II listed buildings, shortly before 5pm on Friday, August 18.

The lorry had travelled down the main road into the village before running into trouble between the Churchtown Arts store and the Grove Cottage and Stippy Stappy on Town Hill.

One resident said the driver told him he had followed and trusted his sat nav.

He said: ‘He wouldn’t reverse and kept driving forward. After about 25 minutes and multiple dents on the vehicle he managed to free the lorry.

‘I hope he hasn’t damaged the grade-II listed buildings in the village.’

The bemused resident said he had seen other vehicles sent down narrow roads in St Agnes before, but had not ended up in such a predicament.

He joked: ‘The lovely driver blamed Satnav. Don’t Amazon sell proper Satnavs for HGVs?’
