The bus became stuck earlier today and was spotted by a local resident who was riding her horse in the area. 

She told the Daily Echo that the bus began performing the turn after it couldn't get under the railway bridge. 

The bus driver had been forced to divert from their usual due to the level crossing at A337 Brockenhurst being closed this weekend. 

HGVs have been diverted via Lymington, Beaulieu, Dibden Purlieu, Ashurst, Lyndhurst.
