Overturned A & J Nelson lorry at Poniel 30/3/12
A HGV lorry carrying coal has overturned near Happendon services.
The lorry’s 16-tonne trailer spilled its load just off the M74 motorway at junction 11 at Poneil.
Thankfully no-one was injured in the incident, which occurred around noon.
Clydesdale chief inspector Colin Murphy told the Gazette: “The trailer of the lorry came loose, which caused the lorry to tip.
“The coal is on the verge of the road and vehicles are able to pass. There is no road closure.
“The driver of the lorry was uninjured and the coal is currently being recovered.
