Monday, 9.45am: Motorists faced major delays early today (2 February) after a lorry lost its load on the A1 at Wansford.

The accident occurred shortly after 3am and the northbound carriageway was shut for about six hours while emergency services cleared the road.

Police say the driver of a Scania refrigerated lorry appeared to have lost control of the vehicle after hitting the kerb.

He said that the trailer had then broken off from the cab, which itself had gone off the road.

The police spokesman said the driver had been slightly hurt in the accident and that no other vehicles had been involved.

He said the northbound carriageway had been closed from Norman Cross.

The carriageway was reopened shortly after 9am.
