Clear-up work on the spillage has been arranged, however Highways England say it might take a while to fully clear - leaving the lane closure in place for most of the day.

A Highways England statement said: “Clear-up work for the shed load of chicken offal in Nottinghamshire on the A453 has been arranged.

“One lane remains closed northbound between the M1, A50, A6 and the A52.

“We’ll get it cleared as soon as possible but as you can see this will take some clearing up.”
