A lorry wedged between a tree and a parked car is a familiar sight in Hampstead’s Church Row.

On Friday last week, a DHL delivery truck got stuck between a British Gas van and one of the trees bisecting the narrow lane off Heath Street.

For months now, residents have been urging Camden Council to do more to stop lorries trying to squeeze through this historic street in their hundreds each day.

It seems nothing has changed.
