Locals in trendy Montpelier, Bristol, said the lorry driver arrived at just before 7am on Thursday, and it was there for the rest of the day and into the evening.
Police arrived and the roads in the area were blocked – by the HGV – and some kind of operation had to be mounted to extract the lorry from the narrow street.
Speaking to Bristol Live, one resident said: “It’s been there since 7am. I spoke to the police at the scene, they said they are awaiting recovery.
“I should imagine it’s going to be quite a while before it’s moved as it was a real head-scratcher.”
