Po­lice of­fi­cers con­trolled rush hour traf­fic in both di­rec­tions un­til a re­cov­ery ve­hi­cle ar­rived at 9.10am.

No-one was in­jured and paramedics were not called.

Kent Po­lice spokesman Lisa Humphries said: “We were in­formed at 6.59am that a lorry had tried to pass a ve­hi­cle and got stuck in the mud half on the road and half in a ditch. This was on a bend on a nar­row road just as you en­ter Chal­lock.

“The lorry was trav­el­ling from Ash­ford to Chal­lock. He ended up on the wrong side of the road, fac­ing on­com­ing traf­fic.”

Kent High­way Ser­vices spokesman John Todd said a verge that was dam­aged by the lorry was re­paired by Tues­day af­ter­noon.
