Applause for resident who helps stuck lorry get out of Bridge Farm Road

Gathered residents watch as Morrisons lorry reverses out of Bridge Farm Road, Uckfield.

There was applause for a resident of Anvil Close, Uckfield, last night after he helped a Morrisons lorry reverse out of Bridge Farm Road, near the sewage works.

It is understood the lorry driver went off course and got stuck while following police directions. The helper was said to be a former HGV driver himself.

Residents moved their cars to avoid damage and to create more space for the manoeuvering.

The incident happened at about 11pm.
