Dudley Ward Tunnel closes after truck carrying supplies for the Field Hospital gets stuck on its way through

Dudley Ward Tunnel was closed for much of Friday after a truck got jammed on its way through.

GBC understands the truck was carrying supplies for the Nightingale hospital.

A spokesperson for the Royal Gibraltar Police told GBC the incident happened at around 10.30 on Friday morning, with the road closed for safety.

The truck was removed shortly after 12.30, but the road was not reopened until 4.30, as it was being cleared and assessed for safety by Technical Services.

The road will be closed again for a few hours from eight on Saturday morning for further works to repair the damage to the area.
