Overturned gritter lorry shuts A16

AN OVERTURNED gritter lorry shut the A16 at Spalding for more than two-and-a-half hours last night (Monday).

The lorry overturned at about 6.20pm at the roundabout leading to the power station.

Police say no one was injured but the road closed until 9pm to allow leaking fuel and salt to be cleared.

Workmen were on site again this morning to clear a big pile of salt at the roadside.
