Authorities remove the forklift (PHOTO: HIGHWAYS ENGLAND)
Traffic near Nottingham was brought to a halt on the weekend after a forklift truck was found blocking a carriageway on the A453.
The large vehicle was lying on its side when Highways England attended the scene on the southbound carriageway.
Traffic officers rushed to stop traffic, joined by officers from Nottinghamshire Police and Leicestershire Police.
Highways England was quick to open a lane through the scene so traffic wasn't held up for longer than was necessary.
There's still no indication of the ownership of the forklift, nor how it ended up on the motorway.
