SUPER BAKKIE: A Toyota Hilux bakkie helped a trucker stuck on an icy road get out of a slippery situation by towing it up the road after a snow storm in souhern England.

SLM Motors in Uckfield used its Hilux to tow a heavy goods vehicle up a slippery stretch of road. The truck was on its way to deliver to a Sainsbury’s supermarket. If the truck had been stuffed to its maximum load capacity, it would have weighed 44 tonnes.
