A JACKKNIFED lorry, which overturned, closed a busy stretch of the A27 for almost six hours last night.

The vehicle was travelling along the westbound carriageway of the A27, near Poling, when it lost control and flipped over, at around 6.40pm yesterday evening (Friday, May 9).

Cement, diesel and other debris was scattered across the highway when police and fire crews from across the area, along with paramedics, reached the scene.

The driver was uninjured during the incident.

A police spokesman said the carriageway was closed until 12am this morning adding that “serious disruption” had been caused.
