Last updated at 12:59, Monday, 06 January 2014
A LORRY bearing a wide load has arrived at the shipyard in Barrow after a journey down the A590.
Cumbria Police had warned the convoy, which was carrying a ship's rudder from Burton Services on the M6 to Barrow, may cause a small delay for motorists.
The load was classed as an ‘abnormal load’ due to its width. It travelled at normal road speeds, but its width led to warnings it may have caused some traffic disruption.
From 11am it was travelling from Burton Services on the M6 Northbound and leaving the motorway at J36. It then headed west on the A590 towards Barrow and arrived around 12.30pm.
