METAL poles came off a lorry on the A12 causing a lane to close.

Police were called at about 4.30pm to the road northbound between Dedham and Stratford St Mary.

A police spokesman said: “A lorry shed its load. The lorry has stopped in a lane and traffic is at a standstill.”

He said no one had been hurt.

The lane has now re-opened.
