Wine spillage closes section of Suffolk road

A MAN was taken to hospital after a lorry overturned on a Suffolk road.

Emergency services were called to the A140 near Coddenham at just before 2pm today, after an incident left a man suffering from possible neck injuries.

A spokeswoman for Suffolk police said that the incident had not left the road blocked, but that an oil and wine spill had swept across the road.

She said: “It was originally thought that the lorry was leaking oil, however pink fluid was scene leaking from the lorry – it was later found that it was carrying wine.

“The wine and oil was flowing across the road, so the slip round was closed.”
