THE main road through Savernake Forest is closed after a large lorry was involved in an accident this morning.

The A346 near Cadley on the outskirts of Marlborough has been closed since about 7.15am.

Two military paramedics travelling behind the lorry stopped and gave first aid to the driver.

A Wiltshire police spokesman said: "We were called just after 7.15am to a report that a lorry had hit a tree. The male driver got out of the cab himself and believed to have suffered a minor head injury.

"Road was closed at the A346 Marlborough end by Budgens and at the Burbage roundabout. Wiltshire Council was called to deal with a large oil leak and recovery arranged. Recovery is ongoing."
