POLICE had to close a road last night after a lorry crashed into a ditch.

Thames Valley Police's roads unit shared a photo of the collision on Twitter, showing the lorry wedged at an angle on the verge of the A415.

The crash happened near Newbridge, which is between Kingston Bagpuize and Witney.

Police tweeted at 6.30pm advising drivers to expect delays, and later said the road would remain closed for recovery work.

It was not until 9pm that officers confirmed the road had re-opened.

South Central Ambulance Service sent a paramedic but the driver was not injured.

Police did not provide further details about how the vehicle came off the road.
