An articulated lorry has become stuck in the centre of Bath.

The huge vehicle was unable to turn a corner at the bottom of Milsom Street causing long delays and traffic jams on the surrounding roads.

It comes on one of Bath's busiest days as the annual Christmas Market gets underway in the city centre.

The lorry has now been moved onto a side street where it remains stranded.

Timelapse footage has been released showing the final stage of rebuilding the A431 Kelston Road.

The road opened this morning after a landslip caused it to close nine months ago.
