Supermarket truck had to be dragged from a narrow road after it got stuck

A supermarket truck must have been dragged off a narrow Swansea road after getting stuck.

An Aldi vehicle, adorned with the Union Jack branding, got stuck in Mynydd Gelliwastad Road, Morriston, on Sunday afternoon.

Residents watched as a Scania contractors crane came to the scene to forcibly pull the vehicle from its position.

It is understood that the truck was traveling along the road as an alternative route after the M4 suffered severe flooding.

A resident, Gary Pugh, said: “I wish the council had a big sign at the bottom of the alley. This sort of thing happens a few times a year. There is always something going on and I chased trucks before I walked past the house.

“From the pilot’s point of view he has come this far and kept going and couldn’t really have said it until it was too late. The board needs to put a better inscription.

But a Swansea Council spokesperson insisted: “Incidents like this are very rare and often caused by a number of factors. A number of road closures, including a section of the M4, may have prompted some motorists to choose a route they would not otherwise use. ”
