The A12 near Woodbridge was re-opened late yesterday afternoon after a lorry carrying chicken litter overturned.

But the Melton Hill roundabout, where the incident took place at about 1.30pm, was still being cleaned and re-assessed earlier today.

A police spokesman said he expected the roundabout to be closed for motorists travelling on the northbound carriageway trying to go to Melton until mid-morning.

Suffolk police received reports at about 1.40pm that a lorry had overturned yesterday, leaving the diesel and chicken litter in the road.

Around 21 tonnes of manure and a large quantity of diesel spilt onto the road and motorists faced delays as a result.

  • The road would of probably been open a lot quicker if the recovery company actually sent a big enough recovery truck and equipment to cope in the first place!
