This lorry driver's first day didn't go very well, writes Josh Barrie for the Quirker.

He drove his heavy goods vehicle into a petrol station in North Devon.

The hapless driver managed to wedge it tight under the roof while on his way home on Monday.

Passer-by Rick Wall, 38, got a quick snap of the scene, which caught the Devonshire Pine lorry tight under the BP filling station.

The driver told baffled witnesses that he was on his first day of the job as the vehicle was removed a few hours later.

Rick, a taxi driver from Bideford, said: "It was a good four foot wedged into the station, the top part of the sign had smashed.

"The driver just looked bemused – I heard it was his first day on the job as an agency driver, he obviously didn't read or see the sign that said the height restriction.

"You would think someone driving a lorry that big would check all the signs.

"That can't have been a good first day.

"There were a couple of people looking at it, I was just driving past and I pulled over to take this quick snap.

"They cleared it after a couple of hours; I'm not sure how they did it. They must have let down the tyres and and reversed it out."
