Subject: Motorway mash-up

A main road in Yorkshire had to be closed because of mashed potato.

The A46 was shut down in both directions on Saturday afternoon when a lorry carrying instant mash spill about a quarter of its creamy cargo all over the single carriage way.

No-one was injured but the police and fire service were called in to frantically deal with the carbohydrate emergency.

North Yorkshire Police used fire hoses, grit, snow ploughs and even freezing chemicals to remove the potato slurry.

After several hours of hard work, they smashed it, and the road was reopened.
