Lorry carrying Branston pickle crashes... in Cheddar

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA A lorry carrying a buttload of wonderful Branston pickle crashed and shed its cargo in Cheddar, which must have resulted in the largest ploughman's lunch ever.

The truck was transporting the popular condiment and got into a bit of a pickle when it found itself sandwiched between the low branch of a tree on its way to a Somerset farm.

One local said: "It’s a shame about the lorry, but we were close to seeing the ultimate serving of Cheddar and pickle."

Mercifully, no-one was hurt in the incident.

Now we're just waiting for some kind of accident with Edwina Curry and Anneka Rice so we can laugh at someone else's misfortune in the name of food-based puns.

    "The accident happened at Bodden Lane, Shepton Mallet, which is a mere ten miles from Cheddar" So, somewhat tenuous. Now, Metro, tell us about a lorry crashing carrying pigs within 100 miles of Sandwich...
