Traffic was backed up behind the unfortunate coach which was jammed between buildings for about an hour.

The Wheal Briton Holiday coach got stuck at the bottom of Windsor Hill while trying to get round a tight corner.

Traffic was blocked for more than an hour as the coach driver scrapped round the bend and smashed the back end of his coach into a granite wall.

One eyewitness said the driver had to carry out a 20-point turn to free the vehicle, scrapping the passenger side and smashing the back end of the coach on the driver's side into a wall.

In the end another coach driver came to the rescue and helped a fellow driver out.
