Drivers were crying over spilt milk after traffic ground to a halt due to a huge spillage of milk bottles.
Hundreds of plastic and glass bottles were scattered across a major roundabout after a lorry shed its load.
Police were called in to help clean up the mess, which involved shattered glass and plastic crates.
The spillage occurred on the Over roundabout outside Gloucester, Glos just after 9pm.
The Environment Agency was called out because the milk is considered a hazard to the environment.
On a Gloucester Police Twitter account, officers made light of the situation.
One tweet read: “Officers at scene of milk spillage. They appear to be lapping it up!”
And another joked: “One of our twitter officers is sour that they were not on duty last night to join in the puns!
“But glad our team were able to mop up.
“Gold top service!”
