Overturned lorry causes delays after blocking major road

The force urged motorists to avoid the area. “We are about to commence a recovery of a lorry near to Salt End Roundabout in Hull, whilst we carry this out motorists are asked to avoid the area if at all possible,” Humberside Police Tweeted. “This will prevent a full road closure being put on.” Meanwhile travel system Inrix reported that the roundabout was partially blocked.
