Police closed a major road in Weston-super-Mare after a vehicle carrying tractors overturned.

Somerset Avenue was shut at about 7pm yesterday (Sunday) after the Land Rover overturned and a large amount of diesel from the car spilled onto the road.

The Land Rover was pulling a trailer, which contained two or three tractors, and a lamp post was damaged during the incident.

An Avon and Somerset Constabulary spokesman said: “Work was undertaken to clear the road of diesel and to make the damaged lamp post safe.

“The road was reopened at about 10.30pm.”
