A bin lorry and road sweeper crashed into each other yesterday, blocking off part of Poundbury Road in Dorchester.

The incident which happened near the Dorchester C Company Six Rifles, has now been cleared.

A Dorset Waste Partnership spokesperson said:

"We have responded to a collision on Poundbury Road, Dorchester, between a road sweeper vehicle and a refuse collection lorry.  The sweeper was travelling from the nearby depot while the lorry was returning to it when it appears they collided on a narrow stretch of road. No one was injured. We are awaiting recovery before the road can be re-opened. We will investigate the cause of the collision including footage from the on-board CCTV."

An investigation is underway into what caused the accident.
