Watch: Lorry driver has lucky escape

A recycling company has released footage of the moment a lorry carrying hay bales overturned, causing delays for commuters during rush hour.

The video was shot from a dash cam fitted in one of Mid UK Recycling's vehicles, in Newark, Nottinghamshire.

The video shows Mid UK Recycling's vehicle being approached by the lorry carrying hay, when it falls.

Police were called to the slip road on the A17 to the A1 Northbound and were involved in the clean up.

The company said no one was injured in the incident. Posting the video on their Facebook page, the company said:

This is why our vehicles are fitted with forward facing cameras.

The A1 is closed in both directions due to a crash involving an articulated lorry and a car between Beckingham Road / Beacon Hill Road (Coddington Turn Off) and A17 / A46 (Newark Showground / Air Museum Turn Off) in Nottinghamshire.

The crash happened on the Northbound side, but appears to have gone across the central reservation.
