Liquid chocolate spillage closes Polish motorway

Tons of liquid milk chocolate are spilled and block six lanes on a highway after a truck transporting it overturned near Slupca in western Poland on Wednesday

A tractor-trailer that overturned on a Polish highway spilled tons of liquid chocolate, causing a sticky mess.

The driver of the truck was hospitalised with a broken arm.

Firefighters used hot water to remove the chocolate, which was drying quickly in the sun.

"It will take several hours", local firefighter chief Bogdan Kowalski told TVN24 television.

A firefighter attending the scene told TVN24 that chocolate is a more risky hazard than snow on a road. "It will take a few hours or more", she said about the cleanup. However, it was unclear where the lorry was headed.

The accident occurred in the morning when there was little traffic and no one else was hurt.
