A LORRY overturned on the A361 at Shipton-under-Wychwood, spilling what was reported to be 10 tonnes of milk on the road.
The driver, a man in his 30s, was taken by ambulance to the John Radcliffe Hospital, in Oxford, with non life-threatening injuries.
The Cotteswold Dairy Ltd tanker overturned at about 4.30am and the road was closed until 10.30am because of concerns that it may have leaked fuel on to the road.
Carole Aldons, of Church Street, off the A361, said: “I’m glad it was nothing more serious.”
