Two lanes of the M4  had to be closed after a lorry spilled three tons of pilau rice in Wiltshire this morning.  

Traffic officers from Wiltshire Police and Highways England were called to the motorway at 2am after five pallets of the tasty side dish, fell from the back of the lorry.     

The lorry was heading to Bristol and South Wales delivering to Indian restaurants and takeaways when the packets of rice fell of the truck.

The driver managed to escape unharmed but shaken.    

The photos that were posted on social media show hundreds of crates of pilau rice spread across the motorway. 

The snaps were shared countless times, after Wiltshire Police officers tweeted ‘smells nice.’

Highways England said  the incident caused damage to the road  and it needs resurfacing

 Up until everything is cleared,   the M4 near junction 17, the Chippenham turn-off had to be closed.
