Police have thanked people in Lambley for their patience as they recovered a vehicle that had left the road following a crash.
Officers were called out during the early hours of Saturday (October 26), following reports of a road traffic collision in the Park Lane area of Lambley.
When they arrived at the scene, they conducted a lengthy search, and later found the vehicle more than 25 feet off the roads edge, lodged between a fast-flowing dyke.
Officers managed to navigate down the ditch to ensure nobody was trapped within the vehicle, before conducting a recovery operation.
This meant that there was large disruption to motorists and residents in the Lambley area until around midday the same day.
A spokesman for Nottinghamshire Police said: “We would like to thank everyone for their patience who was affected by this incident, and also thank the local farmer who assisted in the clear-up and recovery operation by utilising his JCB digger.”
A 33-year-old female from Burton Joyce was arrested on suspicion of drink driving and has been released from custody under investigation.
