A1 remains closed 10 hours after lorry crashes into central barrier at Colsterworth while ‘complex’ recovery takes place





A major road remains shut nearly 10 hours after a crash while a complex recovery takes place.

The A1 is expected to remain closed for at least another three hours while a “complex” recovery takes place to remove a lorry that crashed into the central barrier and overturned at Colsterworth just before 7am this morning (Monday, March 18).

A red Daf HGV and a white Man HGV were involved in the crash and both drivers have been taken to hospital with injuries. These are not thought to be serious.
