The delivery of a mobile home on market day brought a town to a standstill.

This morning, between 8am and 8.30am, the delivery on Oak Street blocked a lane of traffic coming into the town centre.

The entire road was then blocked off while the home was maneouvred down a tight alley.

Traffic was busy in the town as its weekly Thursday market was being held.

There was extra traffic caused by voters wanting to access the polling station at the town's community centre.

A builder who was working nearby, but did not want to be named, said: "Who does something like this on market day? It has caused absolute chaos. It's also set me back as I was waiting for the delivery of some concrete and it's now running 45 minutes late."

The delivery had plenty of spectators with people leaving their cars and watching on the street.

The mobile home has now been successfully moved into the alleyway.
