The A17 east of Heckington was blocked after a lorry ran off the road into a ditch.

The incident was reported shortly before midday on Monday between the turning for Heckington village (B1394) and Sidebar Lane (B1395).

According to a Lincolnshire Police spokesman, there was a collision near the Heckington MOT Centre in which a lorry partially ran into a ditch, partly blocking the road as a result. A car was also said to have been involved.

Two fire crews from Sleaford and a crew from Grantham attended the collision.
