DRIVERS faced lengthy diversions today when the A35 was closed eastbound between the East Road roundabout in Bridport and the Monkey Jump roundabout, Dorchester, because of an overturned lorry.
The incident, which happened around 7am this morning between the Litton Cheney and Long Bredy turning, caused traffic chaos.
Traffic was diverted via the A3066 while the road closure was in place as the HGV was recovered.
A police spokesman said the lorry was blown over in very high winds and motorists were urged to take extreme care in the current weather conditions.
There were no other vehicles involved and the driver is reported as unhurt.
