Major link road to Dundee closed today after lorry overturns

A Tayside trunk road was closed this morning after a lorry overturned underneath a railway bridge.

Emergency services headed for the scene after the DAF lorry came to a halt on its side underneath the bridge just south of Inverkeilor, on the A92.

It is unclear how the lorry came to be on its side.

A Police Scotland spokesman said that there had been no serious injuries and that the road had been closed whilst the scene was cleaned up.

A spokesman for Network Rail, which is responsible for the bridge, said engineers were on site.

The bridge is understood to not have sustained any damage and trains have been able to continue running as normal.

A Scottish Fire and Rescue spokeswoman said they received a call at 8.33am and worked to ensure the scene was safe.
