As the van floundered and attempts to free it met with little success, one tenant, L Benham complained he and his neighbours had spent years campaigning to get their road improved.

‘At the moment our road is nothing but a grassy green and it is time we were given a decent road surface to drive on,’ he said.

The Co-Op delivery van was only freed after branches were shored underneath the wheels.
