It took more than two hours, but an articulated lorry has finally been freed from its muddy prison in Worthing.

Police were called at 11.37am today after the lorry became stuck in the mud, half on and half off the carriageway in Angola Road.

Its driver made several unsuccessful attempts to free the vehicle.

At 1.47pm efforts to move the vehicle off the soft verge finally succeeded.
