A car had to be recovered after the driver got stuck down a narrow street in Richmond yesterday.

The incident happened in the town’s Millgate, which leads from the Market Place to the river.

The Audi A3 became wedged between a wall and high kerb while the driver was trying to manoeuvre.

Police and soldiers attempted to move the vehicle, however a breakdown recovery company was needed to release the car.

No damage was caused to the car or the wall.

In a post on social media, police in Richmond urged motorists not to let other drivers “bully you to make manoeuvres in a panic”.
