Lorry topples over and lands in field close to Eastwell Manor hotel in Ashford

By Dan Wright

A lorry toppled over and landed in a field after the French driver tried to avoid another truck heading in the opposite direction.

The HGV rolled onto its side on the A251 Faversham Road close to Eastwell Manor hotel in Boughton Aluph, Ashford.

Firefighters were called just after 1pm as there were fears the driver was trapped, but crews did not need to cut him free.
