A lorry driver is recovering in hospital after what emergency services have described as a 'terrifying ordeal', as his vehicle hung precariously over a bridge on the A1(M) in North Yorkshire.

He is said to have serious, but non-life threatening injuries after the accident early this morning on the Northbound carriage between Bramham and Boston Spa.

There is still queueing traffic there this evening, although all lanes have now re-opened, with congestion on the M1 to junction 47 and on the A1 (M) to junction 43 at Hook Moor.
