This is the moment a car got stuck down a narrow lane in a Cornish village.

Lorry driver Matt was heading along the road in St Buryan, near Penzance, when he met a car coming the other way.

The BMW pulled in but as Matt went to try and get past the driver tried to turn around in the middle of the road.

Apparently he managed to completely turn around before driving off in the other direction.

Matt captioned the video 'when on holiday in St Buryan'.

"I'm a lorry driver for Celtic Turf, I was on my turf delivers leaving St Buryan, heading for Crows-an-wra, met this BMW in the narrows.

"He pulled in, I could get past, just as I was about to go past he pulled forward nearly hitting the front of my lorry and performed this unusual manoeuvre in front of me, and drove off in the other direction."

The incident has been compared to this classic moment from Austin Powers...
