Flour lorry tips its load on to M5

Staff writer

An overturned lorry shed 24 tonnes of flour and 200 litres of diesel across the M5 after being involved in a crash.

Bags of organic flour, believed to be from a local mill, were thrown across the motorway in Gloucestershire in the crash, which happened on the Southbound carriageway between junctions 14 and 15 near Thornbury, and involved a lorry and a car towing a caravan.
