AN overturned lorry closed the A510 between Finedon and Junction 11 of the A14 for more than four-and-a-half hours yesterday.
The road was shut both ways from 10am until about 3.10pm while a recovery operation took place.
The articulated lorry, which was carrying a shipping container at the back, was the only vehicle involved in the accident.
Two rescue vehicles, including a crane, were required to move the lorry before the road could be re-opened.
The driver of the lorry escaped crash with only minor injuries.
