UK: Tomato puree spillage closes A14 in Cambridgeshire

An incident on the A14 at Godmanchester yesterday evening involved two jack-knifed lorries. One of these was loaded with tons of olive oil and tomatoes; as the cargo spilled onto the road, the scene looked like carnage.

The driver of one of the two trucks was taken to hospital but has since been discharged.

Expectedly, social media users have been unable to resist weighing in with puns, with one calling it "a disaster, puree simple". A BBC Radio 2 listener asked if it "was suitable for traffic to passata safe distance", while another tweet read: "Some of our drivers had to go pasta this earlier today. They are starting to ketchup after the delay though."

A 37km stretch of the road was closed but has since reopened.
