Hundreds of rush-hour drivers are being reduced to a crawl on the A14 near Market Harborough this morning (Monday) as a trucker tweeted an apology for breaking down.
The stranded lorry driver said sorry as traffic was slowed to walking pace eastbound from Kelmarsh to Rothwell as one lane of the busy route was blocked just before junction four.
Apologetic trucker Bill tweeted: "Sorry A14 I'm stuck in gear. Can't move my truck.
“Jammed,” he reported. “Won't even roll."
