Cars trapped by lager spill
MOTORISTS were trapped for three hours on a ‘beer highway’ after nearly 2,000 gallons of LAGER spilled out onto a road.
A lorry shed its load of Red Stripe after it overturned and hit a central reservation.
It is believed to have been carrying around 50,000 cans of the popular Jamaican drink.
Motorists were delayed from 2pm till 5pm on Monday while the booze was mopped up from the A2 near Canterbury in Kent.
Driver Gary Bright, 43, said he missed an appointment because of the delays, adding: “The cans of lager were rolling all over the road.
“If I could have pulled over and put a couple of crates in the back of my car I would have, but I don’t think the police would have been very happy about that.”
