Traffic was stopped in both directions as drivers tried to free the vehicle, which was lodged under the Puppy Green Aqueduct owned by the Canal and River Trust.

Officers from West Midlands Police attended the scene to help minimise the disruption to drivers.

The Canal and River Trust has been approached for comment.
