Largo Road has been closed between the junctions with Emsdorf Street and Cupar Road.

House owner Anna Gannon told STV News: “I was still in my bed when I heard a loud bang.

“I looked out and saw the trailer jack-knifed across the road. I got a fright when I came out and saw the tractor.

“It’s sitting balancing on the wing mirror and it’s close to a gas pipe.”

The recovery team has called the gas supplier to shut off the supply as a precaution before moving the vehicle.

Mrs Gannon said similar accidents have happened in the past and she has called for safety improvements to the road.

She said: “In the last 15 years there has been numerous accidents.

“Vehicles have crashed into my house in the past who have lost control coming down the hill.”

A police spokesperson said: “At around 9.15am we were called to reports of a vehicle overturned on Largo Road, Lundin Links, Fife.

“Officers are at the scene and the Scottish Ambulance Service are in attendance.

“The road is currently closed.”
