they found no-one inside.
fire spokesman told Burnham-On-Sea.com: "Crews confirmed
that no persons were trapped within the lorry but that diesel
and cider were leaking from it."
"Crews got to work cutting away the side of the lorry in
order to confirm that it had not landed on any other vehicles.
They confirmed there were no further casualties or vehicles involved
and got to work dealing with the spillage."
Police diverted traffic around the scene, but long queues of
traffic developed leading up to the roundabout.
