Broken down refuse collection vehicle partially blocks Margards Lane

Drivers using Margards Lane at the junction with Howe Lane experienced congestion and delays this morning due to a broken down bin lorry.

The incident coincided with the school run on Thursday morning with hundreds of parents using the partially blocked road to drop off Children at Verwood First School and Emmanual Middle School for their last day of the school term.

As a result, the waste collection service may be delayed in some areas.

Dorset Council offers this advice if your bin collection is missed by the end of the day.
