Residents of a Wiltshire village became trapped inside their homes after an articulated lorry tipped over on the private road outside their houses.

The driver's sat nav led him to get stuck down Elcot Lane in Marlborough before the lorry's trailer completely toppled onto one side, blocking the entrance into and out of the residential road.

The driver was not injured during the incident and the cab stayed upright.

The lorry containing fertiliser, was led down the private Barnfield road by sat nav when it became struck by a bridge. Although the cab passed under the bridge, the trailer tipped onto its side and blocked the entire road.
