A Lincolnshire Police spokesman added that the incident happened close to the A607 junction: “The vehicle, a white HGV, left the road and came to rest in a field.”

The crews helped the driver from the cab, who was then treated by an awaiting ambulance crew.

The police spokesman said: “The driver, in his 40s, was taken to the Queen’s Medical Centre, Nottingham with injuries reported as serious.

“The road was closed and re-opened at 4.30am.”
