A road in Kirkcaldy has re-opened after a clean up operation which followed a gritter lorry over-turning.

Chapel Level was closed for several hours after the incident early on Sunday morning.

It happened at 6.00 am when a Fife Council gritter tipped over, shedding its load of salt.

The road was closed until shortly before 10.00 am to allow the vehicle to be removed and the grit cleared


During that time Stagecoach diverted services, but they X27 has now returned to its normal route.
