The incident totally blocked the busy main road as a two-mile queue of drivers battling to get home from work quickly built up.

Alerted by Leicestershire Police, the ever-resourceful 4×4 rescue squad linked several of their vehicles together before managing to haul the stranded lorry free just before 9pm.

Police have thanked the volunteers for their help.
