A SCRAP lorry overturned on the A420, shedding its load across the carriageway. 

As of 6pm, the road had reopened after an extensive clean-up operation. 

Bit of old cars, sheets of corrugated iron and a drainpipe were among the tonnes of scrap metal strewn across the road. 

Police drafted in a tractor to help scoop up the debris. 

The Oxford Times:

Motorists were told to avoid the area with a diversion in place through Longcot village.
