Residents took pity on the driver
A lorry driver was trapped in a country lane for four days after claiming his sat-nav sent him on a road that was too narrow to pass.
The driver had to sleep in his cab and the residents of Lansdown, between Bristol and Bath, offered him food.
The vehicle has now been impounded and the driver returned home to Lithuania.
Width restrictions apply on the road, but vehicles keep getting stuck as sat- navs show it as being a shortcut, residents have claimed.
Colliers and Charlcombe lanes were closed as a result of the blockage.
One resident, who asked not to be named, said the driver's company had ordered him not to leave his vehicle while it was stuck and he was forced to stay with it until it was removed.
"So many of us felt sorry for him that we were bringing him coffee and sandwiches," she said.
"In the past we've even had coaches get stuck and a whole group of tourists with their suitcases have had to get out and walk back to the main road to be retrieved.
"We've had two or three vehicles stuck here every year."
A Bath and North East Somerset Council spokesman said: "The vehicle would have passed signs informing the driver of the width restrictions on this route and warnings that the route was not suitable for heavy goods vehicles.
"Following this incident the council will review whether further signs are necessary."
