A major road in Shropshire was closed after a lorry shed its load of pre-made spaghetti bolognese.
Twenty tonnes of pasta and sauce covered the A5 near Shotatton, forcing police to close the road between the A483 at Oswestry and the A458 at Shrewsbury.
A spokeswoman for West Mercia Police, which attended just after 11:30am on Monday, said it was not clear how the food had ended up on the road.
The spaghetti bolognese was strewn all over the carriageway for around 100 yards, with strands of pasta dangling from the wheels and the front section of the heavy goods vehicle.
No-one was arrested and no-one was injured.
