This is the moment a lorry left the A1(M) in Yorkshire - and narrowly avoided careering down the embankment.

The accident happened close to junction 44 for Aberford and Bramham, near Leeds, this morning in icy conditions.

Two lanes were closed to traffic during the incident. The HGV driver was taken to Leeds General Infirmary with serious but not life-threatening injuries.
