THERE is traffic chaos on the A35 after a lorry collided with a car near Winterbourne Abbas.

Dorset Police was called to the incident at 2.02pm.

The road remains currently blocked on one side as attempts are made to remove the lorry which careered into a field.

One motorist said: "Traffic is now solid all the way back to Bridport.

"We were diverted towards Maiden Newton but that road is too narrow and has become blocked by lorries.

"People are trying to turn around and head back to Bridport and as the coast road is also closed it is utter mayhem."

A spokesperson for Dorset Police said: "The road traffic collision on the A35 involved a blue Audi A4 registered to a local keeper from Dorchester and a lorry registered to a company in Middlesbrough. "There have been no reported injuries."

Paramedics are also currently at the scene.
