A road in southern Scotland has reopened four days after an accident involving a lorry towing part of a wind turbine.

The A713 Castle Douglas to Ayr road was shut just north of Parton following the incident on Monday.

A DAF lorry, part of a convoy heading to the Brockloch wind farm at Carsphairn, had left the road.

Recovery work took some time but the road has now reopened after inspections of its condition.
