  • A crane had to be deployed in order to remove the lorry from the road.
A bin lorry got stuck as the road it was moving on melted due to the heatwave that has hit the country. According to a report in the Independent, the incident took place in Old Bath Road in Newbury, Berkshire in UK.A crane had to be deployed in order to remove the lorry from the road.

The people driving the vehicles said that they were thrown forward as the truck stopped and suddenly got caught on the road.

The Thames Valley Police as quoted in the Independent conveyed that the road in which the vehicle was stuck was reportedly closed overnight.

The engineers are looking to see if the hole in the road had been caused by the extreme heat and rising temperatures.

It has not been established if the hot weather is responsible for the melting and deterioration of the surface of the road, but multiple occurrences of tarmacs melting have come to the fore from across the UK.

The weather in the country is expected to get hotter and the temperatures set to rise to 33 °C in London.
