Man gets lorry stuck under petrol station roof

A man got his lorry wedged into a petrol station on his first day in the job.

The unnamed man was driving his Devonshire Pine vehicle into a petrol station in North Devon but failed to read the height restrictions and it got stuck under the roof, the Daily Telegraph newspaper reports.

Rick Wall, a local taxi driver who witnessed the event, said: "It was a good four foot wedged into the station, the top part of the sign had smashed. The driver just looked bemused - I heard it was his first day on the job as an agency driver, he obviously didn't read or see the sign that said the height restriction.

"You would think someone driving a lorry that big would check all the signs. That can't have been a good first day."
