Lorry sheds load of 21 tonnes of lager
Police said it was ‘thirsty work’ clearing up the mess in the heat.
Police officers had a thirst-inducing afternoon of work after a lorry shed a load of lager near a motorway junction.
The vehicle shed 21 tonnes of lager near J4 of the M8, West Lothian, at around 3pm on Tuesday.
Police tweeted that ironically it was “thirsty work for all those involved clearing the road” as temperatures soared.
