Chicken spill fowls up motorway

Frozen chickens on the motorway caused chaos for drivers on the M5

Motorists' journeys have been fowled up by 1,000 frozen chickens.

The poultry spilled on to the M5 near Bristol after a delivery van hit the central reservation.

Avon and Somerset Police said they were called to the incident on the south-bound carriageway between junctions 19 and 20 of the motorway.

"The driver was taken to hospital with a head injury, which is not life threatening," a police spokeswoman said.

Highways Agency staff helped clear the chickens from the M5, which was reopened a short time later.
