The lorry crashed near the village of Welburn on the A64 road in North Yorkshire. The packaged mashed potato has combined with residue, causing the mash to cause a serious hazard to drivers.

"Instant mash is covering the road and cars have skidded as a result of the mash swelling up," a police spokesperson told the York Press.

The road is closed in both directions, with drivers delayed by the mash released as a result of the smash.

People stuck in traffic on their way home from the Yorkshire coast were baffled.
