Anyone who's watched Fireman Sam will know to let the tyres down.The driver should have ‘let the tyres down’ to gain the extra 6-8” to reverse out.
That happened at the Iron Railway bridge on the A30 at Goss Moor in the 1980s.
The Police were escorting a exceptional load(a friend of mine was in the detail) someone screwed up the height,the trailer just caught the bridge & got stuck.The Old Bill fearing acute embarrassment let the tyres down & the trailer then cleared the bridge A call to a local garage for a air compressor to pump the tyres up after the trailer cleared the bridegroom...It was like Billy Smarts Circus
