Dustbin lorry stuck in the snow

There have been cars getting stuck in the snow and ice on the street outside my office for the past couple of days. As I write this entry, there is a people carrier outside my window going absolutely nowhere; his wheels are just spinning and spinning. I recorded the following video shortly after I arrived this morning:

I've done fairly well in Fenchurch. When I set off home yesterday I found that I'd frozen into a rut that wouldn't let me go forwards or backwards, but I just rocked her back and forth a bit until she broke out of it, then she coped perfectly fine with the ice. It helps to carefully feather the clutch to avoid spinning the wheels and losing all traction.
