Here's the large mashed potato spill that caused traffic chaos on a UK road

*insert potato pun here*

YESTERDAY, OFFICERS of the North Yorkshire Police were called to an incident where the road was completely blocked by a lorry’s spilled load of mashed potato.

The police tweeted this photo of the road AFTER most of the delicious carbs had been ploughed away.

And it took them so long to clear up the mash spillage, they had to issue updates on the “Instant Mash situation”.

Several methods were tried, including freezing chemicals and high-powered hoses.

And the potato pile-up caused “extreme tailbacks” in the area.

All in all, it hasn’t been a good weekend for food transport.
