Police and British Telecom were called out to Long Road, after cables were knocked down by the lorry and left hanging dangerously at around 7.35am.

The damage caused traffic problems, amidst concerns that other large vehicles and buses may hit the cable as according to a police spokesperson “it was hanging very low.”

BT are currently on the scene replacing the cable, and the area is expected to be flowing freely again shortly.
