Picture shows HGV overturned after going through hedge into field on country road

A picture has emerged of an HGV having overturned on a country road after apparently coming through the bordering hedge. The picture was posted online by the Dorset Traffic Cops Facebook page, which stated officers were attempting to recover the vehicle after the incident near Sherborne in Dorset.

The truck seems to have been carrying some kind of soil or mulch

The picture shows the truck on its side, having apparently carved a hole in the neighbouring hedge and its load of some kind of soil or mulch having been scattered across the field.  The post from earlier today (February 14) stated the incident was based on the single-carriageway road between Middlemarsh and Buckland Newton, south of Sherborne and would take two to three hours to be fully dealt with.

Drivers were advised to find alternative routes around the problem while the vehicle was recovered.
