Tonnes of poo spilt on road

A sewage tanker has crashed spilling tonnes of human poo across the road near Evesham, in the Midlands.

The white tanker was carrying around 44 tonnes of liquid waste, when it hit a crash barrier in the middle of the road on Tuesday morning.

No one was hurt but drivers were told to avoid the area and keep their windows up because of the smell!

Police said the clean up took several hours and that the A46 had to be closed briefly while the spillage was cleared.
