The incident took place at about 6.30pm at the Fenton Road roundabout, with a trailer tipping over and sending tonnes of freshly-harvested wheat onto the carriageway.

Roger Green, who lives in Fenton Road, said he heard a “loud bang” and found the trailer on its side when he went out to investigate.

He said: “The wheat pretty well blocked the road, although after a while traffic did manage to find a way around it. Thankfully nobody was injured.

“The police arrived and it took a long time for them to clean up the mess and to get the trailer upright again.”
