A LORRY ended up in a ditch after coming off the road this morning (Wednesday).

The truck, owned by concrete supplier Richard Carter Ltd, was overtaking a roadsweeper at around 7.45am at Hale Common, near Branstone Farm, when it slipped off the edge of the road and onto its side.

Company owner Mr Carter said: "The road has just been resurfaced and there was a road sweeper clearing it up. The driver passed him and came off the edge of the road into the ditch. He is all right though, he wasn't injured at all."
