The footage shows the lorry beginning to slide as it drives very slowly down the road in Huddersfield centre.

In what must have been an awful experience for the poor driver, the lorry's load then continues to slide sideways on the road until it's at an angle on a side street.

Nervously, drivers creep along the snowy road behind.
