Police Mistake Morrisons Van for an Ambulance for a second time

Watford News 16th November 2016

Following a re-design of the Morrison's Vans to an all yellow colour, an increasing number of people and even including the police are getting caught out by the close similarity.

One police force tweeted "oops, waved at another Morrisons van thinking it was an AMBO"

The Morrisons tweeted a reply "Hahaha! Our drivers do love a good wave guys :) - Chris"

Footage captures moment Morrisons’ delivery driver scrapes van through tiny 6ft gap

AN amazing video shows a determined supermarket delivery driver squeezing his van through an impossibly tight 6ft gap.

The Morrisons driver scratches the side of his van and hits a wing mirror but still somehow manages to get across the weight-restricted bridge near Lancaster.

The hilarious clip was filmed by two men in the following car who can be heard shouting and swearing in amazement at the ill-advised stunt.

It is thought the driver was trying to save time on his journey by using the narrow bridge across the River Lune which connects the villages of Denny Beck and Halton. A warning sign tells drivers the bridge is weak and has a three tonne limit.

The driver stops at the end of the bridge because his vehicles is simply too wide for the gap.

Undaunted, the driver appears to mount a small section of kerb and press on.

And as the vehicle wobbles around, the side door is shown opening and flapping around before the van finally straightens out.

Local plumber Brad Boyd, who captured the footage, is heard erupting into laughter with his friend screaming: “I can’t wait for this. He’s scratched f*** out of it. Go on son. Woah f***, f***.

“F****** hell man, look he’s f***** it.”

The boys then begin honking their horn at the driver as he pulls over at the side of the road – presumably to check for damages.

Brad, 19, said: “It was hilarious as you can see. Basically we were behind him and when we got to the bridge, you could see it wouldn’t fit.

A Morrisons spokeswoman said: “Our delivery driver took a wrong turn whilst trying to get to a customer’s house to deliver their shopping.

“Because he had a vehicle behind him, he thought the best course of action would be to proceed over the narrow bridge, rather than trying to turn around.

“We apologise for this incident.”
