Update: Downham Market to Wisbech road likely to be closed until 2pm after scrap metal lorry sheds its load at Nordelph

Diversions in place as A1122 is shut to recover lorry and load

The main road between Downham Market and Wisbech set to remain closed until after lunch after a scrap metal lorry shed its load.

Highways staff are working to clear the A1122 at Nordelph and diversions have been put in place.

Recovery of the lorry has yet to take place and the road will have to be fully cleared and swept before it can re-open.

It is not believed the driver of the lorry was seriously injured in the accident which did not involve any other vehicles.
