For the second time in 24 hours a lorry has come to grief on Fenland roads.

The unfortunate driver this time only discovered how soft are the Fen verges when he tried a manoeuvre on the approach to Doddington. It wasn’t the successful turn he had expected or hoped for.

Traffic was, of course, held up whilst the driver sought help.

“When we went through, the driver was walking about flapping his arms,” said an on the spot observer.

“I think he’s there for a few more hours yet.”

And he didn’t have the excuse, as today’s driver did, of snowy driving conditions.
