An Amazon delivery truck made anything but a Prime turn after getting stuck on a Lichfield road.

Residents were woken at 2am today (20th February) to the sound of the HGV trying to turn around on Shortbutts Lane.

The driver had attempted to drive down the road, only to find the railway bridge was too low.
