Cars trapped by lager spill

Midweek Sport - - FRONT PAGE -

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.”
