EMERGENCY services have been called to a Herefordshire village after a lorry crashed into a hedge.

The fire service said it sent four crews to the village near Kington where the lorry, pictured leaning precariously against a hedgerow, had left the road.

A spokesperson for Hereford and Worcester Fire and Rescue Service said the uninjured driver was out of the articulated lorry before the crews from Hereford, Leominster, Kington and Kingsland got to the scene.


Rhyse Lane, Lyonshall, was closed by the crews after the call came in at 7.48pm on Tuesday (November 9).

"An articulated lorry had left the carriageway and was leaning at around 50 degrees into the hedgerow," a fire service spokesperson said.


"The driver was out of his vehicle by the time that fire service personnel arrived and had no injuries.

"The road was temporarily closed by fire service staff and police were requested to organise the vehicle’s recovery."
