This incident, captured at 10.30am today (Friday) was thought to have been caused the driver of a foreign-registered Scania lorry trying to avoid the temporary traffic lights at the bottom of Kingsbury Street near the Town Hall.

The resulting and predictable chaos led to a long tail-back of car drivers with nowhere to turn, and a public bus attempting to head uphill through a narrow gap.

“The council need to sort this out,” a frustrated resident told Marlborough News Online.
