A50 roundabout crash leaves lorry on its side

Two lorries were involved in a collision which left one of the vehicles tipped on its side. The crash happened on the roundabout that links the A50 to the A515, at Sudbury, earlier this evening. Following the collision, one of the vehicles overturned.

Shortly after 8pm, police said recovery was in progress. This is not the first time such an incident has taken place on the roundabout. In 2018, a lorry overturned causing major delays for motorists.

In a tweet, Derbyshire Roads Policing Unit warned drivers to be cautious on the approach to the roundabout.

They said: "This roundabout requires drivers to consider that the speed of their approach is appropriate to the vehicle they are driving - it's not a race.

Recovery in progress."
