We are currently attending an incident on the A50 Westbound in Stoke on Trent.

We received a call just after 1pm today (Tuesday 19 January) reporting a lorry that has shed its load all over the carriageway, just after the Normacot exit heading towards Stoke.

The road is completely blocked and police are setting up diversions.

Highways are in attendance clear the debris from the road and drivers are advised to avoid the area if possible as there are likely to be long delays.
