A large lorry left a “seriously muddy” Fenland back road, causing long delays for motorists near Guyhirn and Wisbech St Mary.
The white artic lorry and green trailer left Gull Bank at Guyhirn at around 10.30am on Tuesday, October 27 and came to a stop in a ditch.
A photograph from the scene, sent in by one of our readers, shows the road, which is used by local farmers, covered in mud.
One resident said: “The roads are bad but it’s that time of year, people should also slow down and drive to the conditions of the road.
“Had the lorry of been going a bit slower he probably wouldn’t have left the road.”
