Trucks in Inappropriate Places (Trucks Terrorising Marlborough)

Marlborough is becoming ever more popular as a place for large articulated lorries to become stuck.  Be it as a result of unconsidered SatNav guidance, diversion to to M4 or A34 problems, or just sheer optimism combined with ignorance on the part of the lorry driver, it's becoming an increasing problem causing hold-ups and inconvenience, not to mention damage to streets, buildings, parked cars and general highway 'furniture'.

Here is a section where some of these excesses can be publicised, if you see any such incidents, please take pics (phone pics will be fine) and send these in to Marlborough News Online at This email address is being protected from spambots.
