A LORRY was left in a precarious position this morning (Tuesday) after skidding on the ice and colliding with a hedge.

The Exmoor Ales lorry was left teetering over an eight-foot drop after the single-vehicle collision on the B3358 near Challacombe at 10.15am.

Police confirmed the road was still open but the four-and-a-half-tonne lorry, which is currently awaiting recovery, was partially blocking the road.

The driver managed to climb free of the vehicle but is being checked by paramedics after complaining of back pain.
