Part of the A180 is “at a standstill” after a lorry overturned this morning.

The incident on the westbound carriageway was reported shortly before 8am and the road was subsequently closed minutes later.

According to Highways England, the lorry is “on its side” and there is “a substantial amount of debris” on the road as well as a spillage that will need clearing up.

Traffic is building heading out of Grimsby due to the closure and it is currently unclear when the road will reopen.
