Motorway covered in tonnes of melted chocolate after lorry overturns in Poland


Tonnes of melted chocolate poured out onto a motorway in Poland after a lorry that was transporting it overturned.

Dramatic pictures from the scene showed the truck on its side surrounded by an enormous puddle of the liquid treat.

Rescue officials said the chocolate began to solidify as it cooled, making the clean-up a difficult task.

Bogdan Kowalski, a firefighter who was called to the crash in Slupca, a town in western Poland, said: "the cooling chocolate is worse than snow."

The vehicle’s driver was rushed to hospital with a broken arm, according to local reports on Wednesday.

No one else was harmed.
