A Hungarian lorry driver has had a day to forget.
The driver got his HGV wedged on Pike Law Lane at Scapegoat Hill at 1.30pm - and won't be free until around seven hours later.
Recovery attempts are ongoing to free the stricken vehicle which blocks the road after a tight bend where the driver came a cropper.
It's believed the Hungarian was using two sat-navs and still managed to get wedged.
Jane Williams, who has lived in the area, for more than 20 years said: “My neighbour phoned the police at 1.30pm to tell them what happened.
“There is a sign explaining that the road is impassable for large vehicles but I understand his language skills are fairly restricted.
“It’s been a problem here since the advent of Sat Navs and always East European drivers.”
Christine Cliffe, 61, of Pike Law Lane said she was gardening when she saw the lorry coming down and stopped by her drive.
She said: “He must have thought ‘oh my goodness’ and I gesticulated to say no but he didn’t realise what was happening and so carried on.”
Mike France, chairman of Mountain Rescue England and Wales was due to be inducting some new people into Peak District Mountain Rescue at Crowden beyond Holme Moss into mountain rescue but his car has been blocked in.
He said: The rescue operation will take three hours”
Steve Wimpenny, of Pike Law Lane, said people have scraped his walls several times over the last 15 years.
A giant recovery lorry has arrived and reversing down Pike Law Lane, inching its way in a delicate operation before it can even start the recovery work.
