As recovery jobs go – it was a big one.
Two powerful lorries, using lifting equipment, were needed to remove a third, which had become stuck in a pond.
The stricken vehicle – a 'shunting lorry' had ended up in a drainage pond near to the Smurfitt Kappa depot, at Hostmoor Avenue, near March.
The packaging company, which has around 43,000 employees in 350 production sites across 33 countries, declined to comment on yesterday's incident.
A police spokesman said: 'We were called at 7.39am today to an HGV that had left the road and ended up in a ditch.'
One lane of the road was closed for the lorry to be recovered.
The spokesman said highways engineers took over. 'There was no mention of other vehicles involved,' he added.
