Southwold: Truck driver and beer load safe after crash
A TRUCK driver was left shaken but unhurt after an Adnams lorry slid off the road.
The vehicle left the road and went into a ditch close to St Felix School, near Southwold, at about 10am.

However the vehicle shed its load, with kegs of beer ending up in a nearby field.
The road was closed just before 11.30am to allow the lorry to be recovered.

'Some beer was left in the lorry and some ended up in the ditch but it was all sealed and will be fine if left to settle. The pubs will still get their beer.
