The driver appeared to have beached his low-riding trailer across a grass mound at the centre of the junction, while trying to manoeuvre his way along the lanes.

It is not known where the lorry was destined, however the section of road around Perrywood Lane and Church Lane had to be closed for two hours until a specialist recovery vehicle removed the blockage.

Tweeting pictures of the incident, an officer with the force's East Hertfordshire rural police team, said: "Sat navs are amazing pieces of technology - don't always trust them."
