A truck has overturned on a Polish motorway and splashed tons of liquid chocolate that is now solidifying all over the road.

The private broadcaster TVN24 showed images of an overturned truck surrounded by brown chocolate covering six lanes on the A2 motorway, blocking traffic in both directions.

Rescue officials said the liquid chocolate was solidifying as it cooled and would require large amounts of hot water to clear away, the Daily Mail reports.

Senior brigadier Bogdan Kowalski, with the fire brigade of Slupca, a town in western Poland, said "the cooling chocolate is worse than snow."
