The photos by Karen O’Rourke give a graphic view of how the lorry ended up.

Happily no one was in the lorry at the time of the accident and there were no injuries – perhaps except for the pride of the lorry driver.

It’s understood that the lorry is awaiting a recovery lorry to put it back on the road.

Many thanks to Karen O’Rourke for getting the photos and finding out more at the scene and Alex Harvey for alerting us to it.
