A LORRY has shed its load outside a school this afternoon.

A ‘considerable amount of debris’ including earth, rubble and wet clay is covering part of Kelbrook Road in Barnoldswick near West Craven High School.

Police have warned it will cause some traffic delays during school rush hour while the council clears it up.


A police spokeswoman said they got a call around 2pm to reports of a lorry shedding its load.

“It looks like earth, rubble and wet clay and is blocking part of the road,” she said.

A Lancashire Council spokesman said they were aware of the situation and a team are on their way to clear it up.
