Cranes had to be sent out to help a lorry delivering sections of a new McDonald’s drive-thru after it became stuck in a north-east retail park.
Work has started on the new restaurant in Portlethen, which will occupy part of the Asda supermarket car park.
Two cranes were at the scene to help shift the vehicle yesterday at around 2pm with the incident sorted at around 4.30pm. Part of the car park was cordoned off at the store while work was carried out to dislodge the vehicle.
A man who witnessed the incident and asked not to be named told the Evening Express how the lorry became stuck after turning a corner, and described how what was on the back of the vehicle was “leaning to one side”.

Plans for the two-storey drive-thru were given the go-ahead at the Kincardine and Mearns area committee in June last year, creating 65 jobs at the site.
McDonald’s were contacted for comment but did not respond.
