A MAJOR town centre road has re-opened after a lorry broke down and spilled its load onto the road.

Emergency services were called to Riverway, close to the junction with Crompton Street at 9.40am today (Thursday), and sealed it off.

Upon arrival they found the vehicle had partially overturned with police saying its contents had spilled onto the road, covering two of the three lanes.

Police say nobody was hurt in the incident with the road re-opened earlier this afternoon.
