A statement from Louth Police said: “The road is closed in both directions, and will be for some time. An heavy goods vehicle (HGV) overturned, fully laden with wood.

“Fortunately non-injury, but due to location and size of vehicle we are not able to reopen the road until it’s been recovered. This will take a number of hours.

“Please don’t drive past Highways road closure and diversion signs. They’re there for a reason and ultimately you’ll be adding time to your journey to seeing how far you can get.”
