Lorry U-turn topples over city streetlight

Streetlight is sticking out at an angle

A lorry knocked over a streetlight in Lincoln.

Police were called to the junction of Wigford Way and Brayford Wharf East at around 7.30am on Tuesday, August 7.

The metal pole of the streetlight is sticking out at an angle.

An eyewitness told The Lincolnite: “A foreign registered lorry just did a U-turn on Wigford Way.

“A left-hand drive lorry did stop after knocking it all down.

“How the trailer didn’t tip is pure luck.

“My heart was in my mouth as I was walking towards it.”
