A tweet by the PSNI says the onslip "will be closed for a period of time to facilitate the recovery of an overturned lorry".

"Motorists should seek alternative routes," they add.

A later Tweet by TrafficwatchNI issues a photograph of the ongoing recovery of the lorry.

It clarifies that the onslip M22 at Dunsilly remains closed “following a lorry & its trailer over turning earlier”.

It adds that “recovery efforts continue” and “knock on delays A26 Lisnevenagh Rd from #Ballymena direction” while “traffic is being diverted towards #Antrim Town”.
