Delays as A15 Scampton blocked due to overturned lorry

Recovery and cleanup of an overturned lorry that shed its load on the A15 near the Lincolnshire Showground on the A15 Scampton will take at least until midnight on Tuesday, June 18.

The incident happened just before midday on the A15, between the turn off to Ingham and the turn off to Spridlington.

A lorry overturned and shed its load of tarmac all over the road. As a result both lanes have had to be closed and diversions are in place.

The driver of the lorry sustained minor injuries and was taken to hospital.

Motorists are asked to avoid the area and it is anticipated that the road will remain closed for several hours in order for the road to be cleared and the lorry to be recovered.

Delays in the area are expected throughout the day ahead of preparations for the Lincolnshire Show.
