Residents have been left fuming after yet another lorry driver has got stuck on a country lane.
The vehicle has blocked Pike Law Lane, Scapegoat Hill.
Police said they were called out at 8.22am today to deal with the lorry which has a Bulgarian registration.
The articulated vehicle was stuck in a lane which has warning signs at either end.
Mike France, who has lived in the area for many years said: “Something needs to be done long term as it is causing problems for residents.
“I have a very important meeting to attend this morning and the only way I could get there was to hire a taxi.”
The last time this happened was in October when a Hungarian driver got a huge container lorry stuck on the narrow, twisting road.
That took recovery experts 10 hours to free and residents are resigned to not being able to use the road today.
A team of recovery experts, Stoneywood, spent hours trying to free the vehicle.
Bronwyn Denton, a kind-hearted grandmother who has lived on Pike Law Lane for 30 years, offered the two drivers hot soup which one of them gratefully accepted.
She said: “I saw the wagon from our bedroom window and I thought: “Oh dear, they are not going to get round that corner and of course, they didn’t.”
Kirklees councillor, Hilary Richards, (Golcar), said: “I understand sat navs have two settings, one for normal vehicles and one for larger ones.
“How do you militate against people not using that?
“Kirklees Council has done an awful lot to try to discourage people from driving down unsuitable roads. What else is there to do?”
And Kirklees councillor Nicola Turner who lives on Pike Law Road, added: “It’s ridiculous but what can you do about these people?”
