Sat nav lorry driver blocks road

Lorry stuck on narrow road
Police have been attempting to remove the articulated lorry

A road in Cumbria has been blocked by an articulated lorry, after the driver said he followed sat nav directions.

Redbank Road, a minor route between Grasmere and Langdale, is closed after the 45ft (13.7m) vehicle became stuck.

The incident happened late on Thursday night, and initial attempts to remove the lorry from the steep, winding road were unsuccessful.

Drivers are advised to take alternative routes, as further efforts to move the lorry take place on Friday morning.
