A lorry overturned while travelling around a busy roundabout on the A303 in Somerset today.
The incident happened on the roundabout near South Petherton early this afternoon.
The lorry ended up on its side between the junctions to the garage on Harp Road and the Ilminster Bypass stretch of the A303.
