Images show tonnes of rubbish covering part of the Tesco Pitsea car park.

Witnesses say thankfully no shoppers were parked there.

One said: "It's the top par of the car park at the back where no one parks luckily. Apparently it has happened before. The drivers cab is partially crushed, however the rescue team said he was ok."
