Horrific images show road covered in chicken guts after truck sheds its load

An horrific clean-up operation has begun this morning in Sandycroft, Flintshire, after a lorry lost control of its load - crates and crates of chicken guts. North Wales Police were called at 7.19am on Tuesday (October 8) to deal with the pavements covered in guts. However, they said the incident on Glendale Avenue was a council matter and not a police one, reports North Wales Live .

A lorry load of chicken guts and offal has been spilled across Glendale Avenue, Sandycroft.

Now, council workers have been scrubbing all morning in the filth and stench to clear the area.

Pictures from the scene also show offal tangled in nearby trees and bushes in a scene reminiscent of a zombie movie. Queensferry town councillor David Dawson said: "There were chicken innards across the road, I would estimate it covered about 20 metres of the road. "It is terrible and stinks.

"It wasn't here when I left work last night at 4.30pm, but was here this morning at 8.20am, so it must have happened some time over night.

"I have worked around here for about five years and have not seen anything like this." Eyewitnesses have commented on the overwhelming stench. The lorry is owned by food group 2 Sisters and spokesperson for them said: "A contracted driver picked up waste material from site at 4.30am this morning.

"Unfortunately, it appears more material than the usual capacity of the vehicle was loaded, and as a result some of the load split a short distance away from site. "Teams were alerted to the spillage and have removed the majority of waste, and a cleaning contractor are now deep cleaning the affected area."
