A MAIN road through Savernake Forest was closed early this morning after a lorry jackknifed across the both carriageways.

The route on the A346 between Salisbury Road and Cadley is now back open.

A police spokesman said earlier this morning: "The A346 is currently closed between Salisbury Road (at the roundabout with Budgens) and Cadley. It's likely to be this way for some time whilst recovery arrives and resolves this mishap.

"HGV's are being diverted at Burbage Roundabout while smaller vehicles are having to be diverted through Wootton Rivers."

This section of road has been subject to a number of lorry accidents involving lorries that have blocked the road. Last autumn a driver reportedly swerved to avoid a deer and ended up crashing.
