A country road has been blocked this morning thanks to a lorryload of fly-tipping.

Sunnings Lane, Upminster had what appears to be broken wooden furniture strewn across the narrow road, stopping motorists in their tracks.

One Twitter user, @carliehammond7, posted that car recovery was on its way to help her after she got stuck in the dark just before 7.30am.

The road is frequently used by fly-tippers and dumped rubbish can even be seen on its Google Street View images.

Earlier this month a van stolen from Saint Francis Hospice was seen fly-tipping in the road.
