A lorry operated by Kingsmill owner Associated British Foods (ABF) became unexpectedly reunited with another division of the food and clothing giant, after wedging itself under one of Primark’s shopfront canopies in Cambridge this week.

The Kingsmill bread lorry found itself stuck after the driver apparently took a wrong turn into a pedestrianised street in the city.

Embarrassing predicament

The lorry was extricated from its embarrassing predicament only when its tyres were deflated.

Felicity Price, who photographed the lorry during a shopping trip, told BBC News: “People were saying the driver was trying to get to Sainsburys, but that certainly isn't the right way to go about it.”

No one was thought to be injured in the mishap.

Meanwhile, earlier this month ABF reported group revenue​ up by 9% to £13.3bn.
