A country road near the Suffolk coast had to be closed this evening after a farm tractor towing a trailer full of leeks overturned spilling its contents all over the road.

A telegraph pole was also hit and damaged during the incident, which happened around 9pm on the B1069 at Snape.

Police confirmed that the road was likely to remain closed for some time while the vegetables were cleared away.
