The great chip lorry rescue

November 2007, and there's great excitement in the village; an articulated lorry has got stuck between The Boathouse and the small barn in the garden of Geraldine Cottage. In its refrigerated container is a load of potatoes destined for a chip factory.

Apparently, the driver has ignored the 'not suitable for heavy vehicles' signs at Trematon-Trehan and has lost control coming down the hill into Forder, leaving a trail of damaged stone walls behind him.

It takes a very large crane to rescue the lorry - see YouTube video.
