“Then three huge lorries were guided through. They were carrying colossal pieces of machinery.
“They also had an escort vehicle with them as well as the police.
“The police were periodically driving round the roundabout and stopping traffic in different lanes coming on to the circle.
“Then they headed west up the Kingsway and seemed to pull over – the entire road was closed off.
“There was so much traffic built up the whole road was blocked and there was four close shaves with people pulling out.
“You could hear drivers honking their horns right around the circle.”
