Boot Hill incident

Lorry on Boot Hill (large version)

At around 9.25am yesterday a six-wheel tipper lorry experienced problems while discharging the last 11 tonnes of material for surfacing.

Rodwell Road was closed by emergency services while the lorry was stabilised and had its load removed by a digger.

The road was reopened at around 2.30pm after the vehicle had been able to drive away.

A full investigation is now being carried out by Hanson’s Panel of Inquiry.

    Unfortunate, but a simple rule of gravity on such a steep incline.
    Presumably the material was stuck and did not slide out as intended.
    Did he tip before the flap was opened?
