A white van heading into Fishergate got stuck on the plinth’s structure.
The Bollard remains missing in action after being skittled during the summer but it hasn’t stopped a procession of drivers becoming stuck on the concrete base.

Lancashire County Council introduced the Fishergate Bollard, and friends, during 2014 as part of a major revamp of the main shopping street in the city.
Following this the bollard, which has its own Twitter account with thousands of followers, has gone on to be featured nationwide as drivers struggled to avoid it.
Since the summer the county council has not replaced the main bollard, although others remain in place closer to the railway station.
