A lorry driver tries to take his vehicle under a bridge. Unfortunately the bridge has lost its height limit sign, but the driver thinks that the bridge is high enough. He drives slowly into the bridge, but the lorry soon gets stuck so that it cannot move in either direction.
The breakdown and fire services soon arrive, but no amount of pushing or pulling can free the vehicle.
A queue of traffic builds up, and it quickly grows into a crowd of spectators. This is until someone comes up with an idea, after which the lorry is able to get out of the bridge in no time.
How did they get the lorry free?
