An articulated lorry which overturned on the A57 this morning has been righted and removed from the scene.

The truck overturned during the morning rush hour on a roundabout between Aston and Beighton.

Traffic chaos ensued as police closed the road to allow emergency services attend to the scene.

The driver of the lorry is thought to have suffered only minor injuries.

Later in the day a salvage crew arrived to winch the HGV back to an upright position.

The lorry is believed to have been carrying paint and several containers spilled out onto the road and pavement.

These photos - taken by reader Dave Seddon - show debris littering the road after the vehicle was hoisted back up.
