A main route in Huntingdonshire was partly closed after a lorry shed its load of Diet Coke. 

The fizzy cans were left strewn across the A1 near Southoe at 8am on Saturday morning (January 30). 

The lorry didn’t stop - so police cordoned off the road while they cleaned it up. 

Footage posted by @roadpoliceBCH on Twitter showed the silver cans being kicked to the grass verge along with plastic wrappers.

The Tweet read: “Would the lorry driver who shed their load of Diet Coke on the #A1 at #Southoe like to arrange a clear up? 

“We have closed the road and swept it up, you’re welcome.” 

The road was reopened just after 10am.
