QuoteNew footage has emerged showing how the Tesco lorry which was stuck down a narrow side street for 15 hours yesterday (May 13) was rescued.

The lorry driver found his vehicle in Upper Cheltenham Place in Montpelier, and then turned right down Brook Hill - where the lorry became very much stuck. Local residents said the lorry arrived at just before 7am, and it was there for the rest of the day and into the evening.

It's better to be up in arms than down on your knees.


Tesco used to employ only experienced drivers. Now they will put any bum on a seat. In many cases they are using "contractors" who turn up in their own trucks, show no paperwork at all (licence, CPC card, DigiCard, or even permission to work in this country).

In this case the vehicle looks to be a Tesco one. However the driver could be recently qualified or a barely assessed agency driver who presented no references other than that provided by the agency.

Deliveries to express stores in inner city and residential areas are a challenging operation for any driver. Would you be sending the above?

There are thousands of individual items in that truck. Merely adding 1p to each would easily cover the cost of employing suitable drivers.
Don't take life too seriously, no one has ever gotten out alive!


Drivers are supposed to follow set routes to stores but many now choose to do their own thing. We often have trucks u-turning outside our store as the corporate route is physically longer than the most direct route.
