Burghfield road closed for four days after lorry overturns

Deans Copse Road - which connects the villages of Burghfield and Sheffield Bottom - is set to close for four days in the light of flooding warnings.

The closure was initially forced by the overturning of a lorry.

However, this was recovered today (Friday), and the closure is scheduled to be maintained until February 1.

Rainfall is expected on Saturday, and this, coupled with the risks posed by a number of abandoned vehicles along the road, is expected to pose issues for motorists.

The overturned lorry is owned by Wiltshire Concrete, based in Devizes.
