Lorry stuck between buildings for 26 hours

Sat Nav blamed

Lorry stuck between buildings for 26 hours

Every now and then, especially after a particularly ingeniously plotted journey, we'll ask: what on earth did we do before Sat Nav?

The answer quite simply is: not get stuck between buildings.

The driver in question was delivering soft drinks to a small village when his Sat Nav led search for a parking space took him to get stuck between a house and an estate agents. The lane had a steep incline so he was unable to reverse.

Instead, he had to endure the laughter of locals and a rough nights sleep in his cab, before a rescue team arrived in the morning. He's since been fired from his job.

In the long-running war between man and computer, we've lost this one.
