In one recent incident, a coach became wedged across the entire width of the road in Guildford.

After taking a wrong turn into Mountside rather than The Mount, the coach driver then tried an elaborate manoeuvre to escape - but to no avail.

Thankfully, a recovery truck managed to drag the coach out of its predicament.
