Update: A47 slip road cleared after John Lewis truck breaks down at Thickthorn

A delivery truck was stuck facing the wrong way on the A47 slip road at Thickthorn this evening.

The John Lewis lorry was stranded on the westbound slip road just before the roundabout with the A11.

Police were called at 4.50pm and directed cars around the lorry.

Officers said the vehicle had a 'malfunction', thought to be with the brakes, when driving towards the roundabout.

The driver managed to spin the lorry around and bring it to a stop without causing any injuries or damage.
