"All pumps were shut down as a result. It was a damage only collision although driver shaken."

Speaking right after the crash, Cambs Cops tweeted: "We helped a lorry who had crashed into a petrol station in March.

"Thankfully the driver wasn't injured but it serves as a reminder to be aware of your vehicle's height!"
