There were no injuries and the ambulance service was not contacted.

A structural engineer will have to go to the scene to assess the damage before the lorry can be removed.

Police closed a section of the road as the 23-year-old driver was taken to Bury St Edmunds police station to be quizzed on suspicion of careless driving.
