Lorry ends up in a ditch after A303 crash

A303 Heading West 11 - Chicklade hill (Mike Draper)

11:30am 15th December 2017

One of the slip roads off the A303 in Wiltshire has been closed this morning (Friday December 15th) following a crash.

The eastbound exit for the A350 at Chicklade has been shut due to the amount of debris left behind and the recovery effort.

Two lorries collided at around 8.20am, with one of them ending up leaving the road and stopping in a ditch.

Wiltshire Police tell us that there's not believed to be any injuries to the drivers.

Highways England has tweeted about the clean-up operation:

There have been some delays on the A303 itself as a result of the slip road being closed.
