Lorry crash sends thousands of Red Bull cans spilling onto motorway

One of Britain's busiest motorways has been covered in thousands of cans of Red Bull after a delivery lorry crashed.

The lorry shed its load onto the M6 and motorists have been facing huge delays and queues after the incident.

The North West Motorway Police tweeted a picture of the scene on Wednesday, writing: "Here is a picture of the RTC M6 SB J19/18, expect long delays."

They also kept motorists up to date with the situation on their Twitter feed:

The North West Ambulance Service attended the scene at 11.24am and two motorists were taken to hospital with minor injuries, but luckily nobody was seriously injured.

The Manchester Evening News reports that thousands of cans could be seen rolling around in the southbound carriageway near junction 19 at Knutsford in Cheshire.

According to the Mirror, a Cheshire Police spokesman said: "Long delays are likely while the scene is cleared and motorists are advised to avoid the area.

"Police are expecting delays to continue for around three hours and drivers are advised to find alternative routes where possible."
