A lorry driver tried to bite off a bit more than he could chew this afternoon.

A picture posted on Twitter showed the vehicle trapped under a bridge this afternoon in the centre of town.

"The bridge looked bigger than he thought," the person who captured the picture said.

"It happened at the exit from the multi-storey car park, Eastrop."

This isn't the first time drivers have gambled and got it wrong in town.

In November last year a van driver was caught out while attempting to pass under the infamously low-lying bridge which goes under the A3010 near Festival Place.

It is unclear how long this particular traffic slight will take to clear.
