Lorry causes road delays near Alfreton

An overturned lorry caused rush hour traffic delays on the A38 yesterday morning.

The driver of a juggernaut carrying steel coils lost control of the load at around 8am on the northbound stretch of the road, close to junction 28 of the M1 near Alfreton.

Fire crews, police and highways officers attended to recover the vehicle, which was on its side, but still passable.

The road was later fully closed while the vehicle was recovered.

No one was seriously injured in the incident.
