A tractor has overturned spilling 11 tonnes of potatoes across a road.

The accident happened on the A1101 near Littleport in Cambridgeshire at about 11:30 GMT.

The driver - who had minor injuries - was swerving to avoid an oncoming vehicle and "fishtailed into a ditch", the county's road policing unit said.

Motorists are warned the road will remain closed "whilst 11 tonnes of potatoes are cleared up", they added.
