Motorists faced traffic delays on the A4146 this morning after a lorry overturned and part of the road was closed.

Bucks Fire and Rescue attended the scene shortly before 4am, a lorry transporting milk overturned and became caught in the high-tension cable barrier between the two carriageways of the Stoke Hammond Bypass northbound near Bletchley.

The road in Stoke Hammond was initially closed southbound between Water Eaton and Linslade, which caused the roads near to the area to be very busy. The road was open and the area was clear by midday.

One appliance and crew from Bletchley and one from Leighton Buzzard attended, along with an Urban Search and Rescue vehicle from Aylesbury and an officer.

The driver was uninjured and was out of the lorry when the crews arrived.
