A fuel tanker had to be recovered after getting stuck in a ditch in Bressingham this morning.

The tanker, which belongs to fuel supplier CPS Fuels, slipped into a verge on Lodge Lane at around 8am this morning. It has since been recovered.

It marks the second time a lorry has got stuck along a road in Bressingham in a month – leading to mounting frustration from residents.

Martin White, who lives in Lodge Lane, said: “We live in a narrow country lane which is being used as an industrial track to Deal Farm. Heavy vehicles are increasingly using these single lanes and it is unsafe to walk or cycle.

“The roads are not even wide enough for two cars to pass’

Mr White’s son, James White, added: “The highway code states that a lorry cannot pass within 1.5 metres of a cycle. The lanes are unsuitable for heavy vehicles.”

Hazel Dormer, who lives in nearby Fersfield, added: “We’ve seen increased traffic and our roads are disintegrating from heavy lorries.”

Much of the concern stems from the development of Deal Farm Biogas – an anaerobic digester being built in Bressingham, which critics have warned will see an increased number of vehicle movements in the village.

A spokesperson for Deal Farm Biogas confirmed that the CPS Fuels tanker was not travelling to the plant.
