Sat-Nav directions not so crystal clear for Bedford glass delivery

Lannutti Clearglaze sat-nav error
The truck was stuck for several hours

A glass delivery got stuck-in-the-mud earlier today thanks to a sat-nav error directing them to the middle of a field.

The Lannutti truck had come all the way from France and was due to deliver glass to Clearglaze on Norse Road in Bedford.

But the driver was directed under the A421 onto nearby farmland, becoming stuck when they tried to turn around.

Upon further research Bedford Independent found that even Google maps was showing Clearglaze in the wrong place.

After reporting the error to them Google corrected the location.
