The Holsworthy Post reports that the Mercedes box van became trapped under scaffolding, which had been erected whilst work on a building in a local street was carried out.

No vehicles could pass so the police and fire services attended along with a team of scaffolders from the company concerned. The scaffolders took down part of the scaffolding in order to free the vehicle, which was not local.

A Devon and Cornwall Police spokesperson said some damage was caused to the building as a number of bricks were knocked out on the first floor.

Details were exchanged by all parties. The police left the scene at 12.40pm but the scaffolders remained on the scene.
