Crews worked through the night to recover a lorry that left the A47 near Guyhirn and plunged into a field.

The Tesco lorry left the A47 shortly after 6am yesterday. The driver was uninjured.

Recovery was initially planned to take place some time between 11am and 2pm, but was delayed.

The A47 between Wisbech and Guyhirn was closed for six hours while recovery firm Tears worked along side the Highways Agency and police to reopen the road before the morning rush hour.
