The Fishergate bollard has once again seen a car wedged atop of it.

John, returning home to the city, saw the incident unfold around 7.20pm on Saturday (9 December).

The bollards were reinstated a few months ago and the original bollard has taken a tumble since.

This time the bollard looks steady and firm, and the car is stuck on top of it.

Fishergate Bollard has a parody Twitter account which stated: “He’s going nowhere. I’ve got a good grip on his camshaft.”
