Two people have been taken to hospital after the lorry they were in crashed into a fallen electricity pole in Holbeach Drove today.

The lorry was travelling along Holbeach Drove Gate, near the B1166 Drove Road, when it left the road and collided with a pylon that had fallen down.

Police, fire and ambulance crews were called to the scene at about 3.30am and two people, the driver and a passenger, were taken to hospital although they are not thought to be seriously injured.

A Lincolnshire Police spokeswoman said: “There were numerous cables in the road, so it was closed while the damage was repaired and the area made safe.”

Residents living nearby were without power for about 30 minutes while engineers from Western Power Distribution reinstated the pole and replaced fuses that had blown.
