Lorry overturns and spills its cargo of “sweet smelling” chocolate

A lorry driver has been arrested after a wagon overturned and spilled chocolate, cereal bars and nuts across a road. North Wales Police arrested a man on suspicion of driving while under the influence of drugs after the incident on the A5104 near Treuddyn, north Wales. The road had to be closed for more than 11 hours after police were called to the scene at around 12.38am (Wednesday, September 18) when the dumper-style truck crashed onto its side and careered through a set of railings.

The cargo of the lorry - made up of a large selection of cereal bars, chocolate and nuts - was left strewn across the road. One eye witness said a tonne of sweet products lay scattered across the road as a result of the incident, leaving a sweet smell lingering in the air.

Nobody is believed to have been hurt during the incident,  North Wales Live reports. In pictures taken at the scene the digger can be seen trying to move the mound of sweet goods and the road remains closed.

The lorry has since been removed from the scene at around 9am this morning.

The incident happened on the A5104 between Coed Talon Banks and Pontybodkin in Flintshire. Photos and video footage from the scene show huge mounds of chocolate mixed up with nuts and carrier bags lying on the side of the street. While a photo from another witness shows the overturned lorry before the recovery began during daylight hours today.
