The lorry appears to have veered across the opposite carriageway and up a verge through trees before rolling onto its side.

Traffic had been able to pass the incident this morning, albeit slowly.

But in the past few minutes a police spokesman said they have closed the A6 in both directions between Finedon and Burton Latimer so the lorry can be recovered.
