Laden artic in trouble in London

The driver made a wrong turn and ended up having to turn on a small roundabout. The trailer was loaded fairly heavily and high towards the front. When the unit was at a right angle with the trailer it didn't have enough stability and the load fell forwards against the tractor unit. The timber packs had split, leaving an awkward situation. Fortunately the rotator was able to lift some of the load from the front to the rear of the trailer. The rest was bundled up as good as possible and lifted, pulled and re-positioned without actually breaking the packs down. This was more awkward than would appear, more like a game of Jenga with blocks weighing several tonnes! The load was re-strapped and the driver delivered it, only two planks were damaged!
