One passer-by, John Stevens, shared photos of the incident which appeared to show hundreds of loo rolls exposed to the elements, with the lorry’s container ripped open.

Police confirmed that inquiries into the circumstances were ongoing, while motorists were advised to avoid the area due to “the extensive build-up of traffic”.

Kersey Freight Limited is a shipping company based in Hadleigh, near Ipswich.

Structural engineers were on location and assessing the scene. Kersey Freight has been contacted for comment.
