Lorry overturns and closes major artery onto Cheltenham's Arle Court roundabout

A lorry has overturned near to the A40 Arle Court roundabout in Chetlenham forcing the road to be closed for much of Friday morning.

Police have reported that a truck overturned, shedding its load across the road that leads from the Arle Court Park and Ride to the Golden Valley.

Emergency services including the Fire and Rescue Service attended the scene.

It is believed the driver of the lorry suffered minor injuries and was taken to hospital by ambulance.

Work to remove the blue and yellow truck and its contents from the spot in Hatherley Lane, close to the entrance to the Travel Lodge hotel just before the road meets the Arle Court roundabout continued until around 2pm.

A statement from the Gloucestershire Constabulary said: "Police were called to Hatherley Lane in Cheltenham shortly before 9.30am following reports of an overturned lorry.

"The driver of the lorry is believed to have sustained minor injuries and has been taken to hospital as a precaution."
