A lorry overturned while travelling around a busy roundabout on the A303 in Somerset today.

The incident happened on the roundabout near South Petherton early this afternoon.

The lorry ended up on its side between the junctions to the garage on Harp Road and the Ilminster Bypass stretch of the A303.

The incident initially caused travel delays as traffic queues built up in both directions of the A303 - the bypass, and also the stretch of the road to Cartgate Roundabout at Yeovil.

Traffic was able to flow freely around the stricken vehicle.
