Wedged bus causes chaos in Bodmin

A bus driver was left red-faced after it caused chaos during rush hour when it became stuck under bridge.

Police diverted traffic away from Lostwithiel Road after the bus became wedged in the already congested roadwork area of the town.

Residents travelling in and out of Bodmin are already experiencing disruption as all three main roads into the town centre are closed as part of a £7.5 million project to turn it into a so-called 'cycle town' over the next nine months.
