DRIVERS are facing lengthy delays in Langport this morning after a 42 tonne lorry became stuck in the centre of the town.
Police say the heavy goods vehicle had a tyre blowout at around 9am on Bow Street, the main road through the centre of Langport, and is now partially blocking the narrow road.
A spokesman for Avon and Somerset Police said: "We would advise drivers to avoid the area and add time to their journeys or find an alternative route."
