A52 open again at Whiston Bank after tanker lorry incident

WHISTON BankĀ  in the Staffordshire Moorlands has re-opened to traffic again following an incident earlier today.

Police set up diversions after a tanker lorry got stuck while negotiating the steep gradient this morning.

A heavy recovery vehicle was used to remove the stricken tanker which had stalled on the slippery surface.

The A52 was busier than usual today due to motorists seeking an alternative route as a result of the A50 being closed between Uttoxeter and Blythe Bridge.
