An overturned sewage tanker caused a Buxton road to be closed for three hours on Tuesday.

The incident occurred just before 3pm on Grinlow Road, Harpur Hill.

Derbyshire Police believe the large lorry, which was empty and travelling from Ayrshire, Scotland, collided with a wall, causing fuel to spill from its tank.

The driver was taken to Macclesfield District General Hospital with minor injuries and the street was reopened at 5.45pm.

Derbyshire Fire and Rescue Service were also in attendance.
