No one was hurt in an incident involving a food spillage on the A14 in Cambridgeshire but it left the road looking like the set of a horror film and led to some even more horrific puns.
Cambridgeshire police said the incident at Godmanchester on Tuesday evening involved two jack-knifed lorries, including one carrying tonnes of olive oil and tomatoes.

Highways England carried out emergency resurfacing works and the road reopened just before 1pm on Wednesday. In the meantime, the incident led to a feast of jokes from Twitter users.
