Penzance police were called to the aid of a lorry that had become wedged between a building and wall yesterday.

Officers believe the driver had been following his GPS when he got stuck after turning on to South Place Folly in Penzance from Cornwall Terrace.

PCSO Mark Richards, was called to the incident at 3.30pm.

"At some point along the route he had got himself wedged against a partly built porch of a new build property in the road," he said.

"It was suggested at the time that the driver was following instructions from his GPS."

The lorry, believed to be registered in Radstock, Somerset, remained stuck for more than an hour before the driver, his crew mate and the owner of the property were able to free it.

No one was injured in the incident although there was some structural damage to the porch.
