The A6 was closed yesterday (May 15) between Whaley Bridge and Buxton after a trailer overturned on the carriageway when its driver crashed into a tree at just before 6pm.

Luckily, the male driver escaped the accident unhurt and called police afterwards to inform them.

He had also arranged for a recovery vehicle to tow the vehicle away.

Police re-opened the stretch of the A6 after the vehicle had been towed.
