AN OVERTURNED lorry caused delays in south Herefordshire this morning.

Police said they received reports of an overturned heavy goods vehicle on the A4137, around two miles north of the A40 junction near Glewstone at 10.45am.

The lorry was carrying a load of timber, which has spilled on to the road.

Motorists were asked to use the A40 to the Wilton roundabout and then the A49 as a diversion.

UPDATE 2pm: The road is now clear.
