Lincolnshire Police warned that they may need to close off the A15 to recover a lorry that has overturned.

An eyewitness said that the lorry skidded off the road before landing on its side north of the Caenby Corner roundabout.

The driver was not seriously injured in the crash but there are currently delays on the road, which will get worse if police need to close the road.

A Lincolnshire driver was freed from their vehicle by firefighters overnight after a crash.

Fire and rescue crews from Gainsborough were called to the A15 at Normanby-by-Spital at around 12.30am on November 6.

Along with the ambulance service, they used manpower to get the casualty out of their vehicle.

One car was damaged in the crash.

It is not yet clear if there were any serious injuries.

Teams cleared the area and traffic was moving as normal on the A15 by rush hour.
