Chorley town centre came to a standstill on Friday after a car transporter got stuck under a tree.
The driver was travelling with seven cars from St George’s Road onto Church Street at midday when he realised he couldn’t get under low-lowing branches outside St George’s Church.
One local shop worker said: “The driver had never been this way before and I felt so sorry for him because he did not know the area.
“He didn’t want to scratch any of the car so he decided to stop,
“It held up the traffic and one of the buses had to stop because they could not get through. The PCSOs seem to be getting the traffic moving again.”
A crowd of shoppers watched on while others stopped and took photos as the vehicle was moved on after half an hour.
