Much crying over spilled beer as lorry sheds load
The road in south-west Poland was awash with the contents of hundreds of bottles of beer.
A truck carrying hundreds of bottles of Czech beer has overturned on a road in south-west Poland, causing people to take to social media to lament the loss.
Andrej Spyrka, a police spokesman in Prudnik, said the lorry-load of Holba and Litovel beer was poorly fastened and caused the Polish truck transporting it to overturn on a roundabout on Tuesday afternoon.
No-one was hurt and traffic returned to normal after about five hours.
The truck was travelling from the Czech Republic to the city of Wroclaw, in south-western Poland.
Tongue-in-cheek comments posted on the police force’s Facebook page expressed sadness at the loss of the alcohol.
