Officers from Hertfordshire Police arrived to find the vehicle wedged across a tight three-way rural junction between two high hedges in the village of Watton-at-Stone, near Stevenage, yesterday.

A specialist recovery vehicle was called to deal with the problem.

"Sat navs are amazing pieces of technology - don't always trust them," read a tweet from the force's East Hertfordshire rural police team.
