Animal offal has been cleared from a main road in Lincolnshire after a lorry spilled its load. The A52 between Threekingham and Donington has closed following the incident and police said it would remain so until at least mid-morning on February 2 for the road to be cleaned. By 11am the debris had been cleared but the road remained closed pending the arrival of a special steam cleaning vehicle to mop up the residue.
